    GENERAL
    Totally delicious stuff.
    Hard to walk past the bottle without having a nip.
    Very easy drinking, even without water, which is quite a feat at this strength.
    Tons of flavour, body and length.
    Not very complex, but lovely and full.
    Didn't like the first dram, then it suddenly blossomed, which was interesting.

    NOSE N FLAVOURS
    Uncannily like very good armagnac, especially in the nose
    The more I drink it, the less I think of it as Scotch- it's so sweetly, deeply fruity.
    However, it also reminds me of a gorgeous Benriach PX finish from some years back
    Water makes it sweeter, but it keeps the power.
    Main notes are:
    - cola bottles (non fizzy)
    - bacon sarnie with maple syrup
    - tangerine marmalade
    - tiniest hint of cough syrup
    North Star has done it again- recommended (for those with sweet tooth!)
