I'll be honest, I'm not usually a fan of peaty styles but when they have the integration that this whisky has, I take notice. Yes it is smoky and oily, little bit more of a hardwood charcoal note but good charcoal, not that crappy self lighting kind. But what really works for me here is the age and the oak integration. As peaty whiskys age, the primary notes of smoke tend to take a few steps back and some of the sweeter balancing notes start to emerge. Like I said, not usually a fan but when you get a whisky this complex and interesting, you just may become one.
