    This whisky is absolute stunner. I had a sample and it was a delight.

    The nose is full and rich and not in your face. 

    The taste is full bodied. It did take a bit of time after arrival to develop ( good sign!)

    the development to finish is nicely balanced. It interestingly reminded my of Glengoyne 18 at one point.

    I know strange, but it was there, different cocoa notes, vanila and very malty.

    Finish again didn`t disappoint I was really sad when I had last sip. Delicious.
