  4. mmaclean scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    What I like about this is the citrus and spicy notes that come over on the palate. The flavor on the finish is nice as well, lots of vanilla and some cinnamon. It is refreshing and well balanced throughout the dram, just remarkable and continues to get better through to the end.
