In a nutshell:
Brittle and unexciting on the nose, this whisky was dominated by the stench of new spirit as peat and a salty ocean breeze struggles to surpass it. On the palate it seemed a little watery with bursts of peat alongside sea salt and earthy jagged rocks. The oak plays a minor role, as this whisky portrayed a youthful theme that seems out of touch for a Scotch whisky.
