    Great whiskey. Shustov Brandy Cask Finish.
    That is as far as I know, so far a singular single exception. I never had. Therefore very exciting and interesting, especially since the finishing is discreet, clean and pleasant.
    For me, the typical Teaspooned Glenmorangie North Highland qualities are even supported and promoted. Citrus fruits with rum and brandy plus some salt, vanilla, caramel, and other light fruits.
    At the same time positively very slightly alcoholic as Eaux de vie. Plus the associated very slight sharpness.
    Something really far away from the mainstream and yet typical North Highland.
