A sweet, seductive, smoky aroma mesmerised us like a barbeque in a pine tree forest near a sandy bay where every so often, a salty sea breeze rustled through the trees. The taste neat had a touch of spice, an earthy floral note and plenty of fried bacon in salted butter with sweet maple syrup in the finish. With water; dim the light, play soft music and serve scallops in an Asian-style dressing and do not forget the Chablis. After that take a bottle of this whisky and settle in for the night; a perfect finish to a perfect day.
