Brilliant amber color. Interesting aromas of pipe tobacco, pencil shavings and halvah, toasted raisin bran and pumpernickel nut bread, and Playdoh and clay with a silky, flat, dryish body and a peppery, engaging, relaxed smoked nuts and raisins, lapsang tea, cedar bark and dust, and peppercorns finish. A curious, lightly smoked, lightly bitter whisky.
