Nose: A lot of wood hits the nose.... some white pepper, caramell... hints of orange peel and tobacco.
Taste: Dried fruits, some tar, a lot of herbs... very fat in the mouth, more orange peel, liquorice.
Aftertaste: Very, very long... you think you can chew it... dried fruits and a slight saltiness.
This Scotch is amazing. I opened the bottle on New Years Eve (close to midnight) and enjoyed it as a first dram of 2011... good way to start the new year....
