Burghound: 86
A slightly more complex nose features notes of red currant, warm earth and a hint of orange pekoe tea. The delicious, vibrant and attractively fresh flavors possess reasonably good detail on the equally punchy and lingering finale. This too will basically drink well upon release though 1 to 2 years of cellaring should help to add a bit of depth.
