The nose surprised me: I didn't detect the flavors that hit me once I tasted this. There is a lot going on with this whisky, more than I can adequately describe. I bought the 3 cl dram and thought I might get a whole bottle. But when I realized just how much a whole bottle would set me back ... Hmmm. Second thoughts. And the thing that kills me is that I so much prefer the Bowmore 15 Year Darkest, which is quite literally a quarter the price. But this is good stuff. (A second sip, and, wow, what complexity! I just have to hold this in my mouth for a while....)
