Nose: Candied fruit. Berries, tropical notes, strawberries, caramelized strawberries, and peach candy. Like those chewy little gummy candies. Very sweet and fruity, with hints of peat.
Palate: Medium body. Smooth arrival with a slightly oily texture. More peat than the nose suggested. Apples and banana, as well as some other less distinctive red fruit notes. A fair amount of salt in here.
Finish: Gentle peat ushers us into the finish and stays. Pears, peaches, bitter coffee, and hints of pepper. Sweet throughout. Those fruity strawberry notes do begin to come back. They don’t dominate, but they do linger in the distance.
Thoughts: This is different, and quite enjoyable. The nose is an absolute treat. Unfortunately the unique fruity/candied scents are weakened on the palate. They return towards the finish, but I’d like to taste more of them. The palate is a straight forward, gently peated, smooth, and well crafted. But it doesn’t quite line up with what the nose promised. Still, it’s got an exotic flavour profile, and very worth trying.
