Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Almond shell, Band-Aid, and wood varnish counteract the more honeyed aspects of this heavily-peated malt. The palate displays an interesting apricot-candy note alongside more conventional toffee and spice, with mellow wood tannins building to the finish.
