Nose: A little difficult to pin down; sweet forest undergrowth, tea loaf, smoked meats, and some slight smokey notes.  Some light spice hints, and a faintly medicinal edge. Palate:  Sweet and dry, a bit stiff and wooden; lots of oak spices, hints of orange and lemon peel, a bit of medicinal peat smoke hanging around as well.  Not overly smooth, nor punch like many younger malts. Mouthfeel:  Quite dry, and not very thick.  Not really any oils to speak of.  A decent burn - more than normal from a vatted blend, but it only lingers for a short while before…

The Ninja's numbers - A completely subjective score.
