    The first time an impulse buy on Amazon has actually worked out. Took a gamble and it paid off big time. It’s a weird and wonderful dram that doesn’t really fit into any of the neat boxes in my head that I’ve created to categorise whisky.

    It’s very young, but has a satisfying complexity and depth that is surprising at this age and price-point.

    The 11.5% rye is the source of the Szechuan heat and spice, but it somehow has no rough edges and is very nicely balanced with the sweet vanilla notes from the virgin American oak.

    It has a thicker than standard mouthfeel, but it's distinctly different from the waxy Clynelish or the gumminess of Craigellachie.

    If you're a bourbon drinker who likes scotch, try this.
