intense aroma of smokey band aids......
same as in the taste, but with some whisky, too.... I don't like the band aid flavor. I like this lineage, I like this brand, this series..... but this one is too smokey for my tastes..... I get the peat. I get the vanilla. it's beautiful when poured into the glass....
