Nose starts with a smoldering campfire and a touch of honey. Taste is light smoke, sweet almost honey taste and a touch nutty, almond like. Over time, the taste moves into earthy herbs and spices and leather. Peat, iodine and smoke are on the finish. A very good Washington Whiskey, my favorite from Westland. I was comparing it to Lagavulin 16, a very different much peatier, smokier version that still has by heart. This is a good local staple to have on hand.
