This is delicious, complex, smooth stuff. This joins my other favorites: Bunnahabhain 25, Signatory's Glenglassaugh 32, Highland Park 18, Tobermory 15, Balvenie 21 Portwood (and others!). On the nose? Yes, sure, Danish pastries, fruity ... and is that vanilla? Mmmm. Upon tasting I'm hit first by smoky, sweet, and chewy. But that morphs into something with a kind of hot-chocolatey or mocha malt goodness, followed by a mild peppery zing. The finish is sweeter, less peppery, earthier. Wish it lasted a tad longer.
