Pale straw in colour with a real sparkle to it. Bottled at 63.2% its a big hitter. The nose is Vanilla, the sweet influence of the 2nd fill hogshead bourbon cask is there. Honey, lightly fruited. It is very drinkable and opens up nicely with a drop of water. Slightly oily in the glass the finish leaves a bite of pepper and a thirst for more. Cracking stuff but not cheap.

I'll be direct: this is GREAT stuff. But $450 (US)? I bought a sample bottle and was blown away. Then I looked up the price. Oof!! For about $100 less you can get Benromach 30 or Bunnahabhain 25. They are equally impressive. Of course, they're also different. No question this is rare stuff. I guess you gotta figure out if it fits your budget!
