    Appears really oily on the tongue with a gentle sweetness. Fruit comes through discreetly. Very round despite the mighty 61%. Then there was a powerful explosion in the throat - smoke and peat. At first I thought someone with a railroad sleeper was frying one over! A great whisky!

    For me unfortunately too uni-dimensional and a notch dry. With Laga from ex-bourbon I need the sweet maltiness and some more bright fruits to make the distillate shine. Don't get me wrong, still a decent dram for a decent price nowadays, but despite the 12 yo (though it seems younger) and high abv. it def. lags behind the ob 12 cs of most if not all of the past years. Try before you buy.

    a beautiful, straightforward laga ... uh bonnavoulin. not overly complex, but a very harmonious whisky that simply fits: smoke, bacon, pistachio (which is typical for me) and nice vanilla sweetness from a solid bourbon barrel. I like!
