This whisky changed my view of grain whisky and even scotch whisky in general. I've always thought grains to exude higher-toned flavors and this one is no exception. However, it is just mellow and smooth as can be while maintaining the brightness - a fascinating paradox. Extremely complex, hard-to-place. I tried it next to some (opposite-end-of-the spectrum) top proprietary malts - Glenfarclas 40 and Glenlivet 25. This one is just as complex and just as good a whisky in it's own weird world. I have become an old grain fan.
