I am not sure why this dram is hyped (not to mention the ridiculous price) but this is surely not because of its taste. To me this is sub-standard quality in almost all dimensions - simple, flat and unbalanced with a non-existing finish. Sorry, I do not want to insult anyone who likes it (my sincere apologies)...
The colour is yellow gold and the nose is rather shy first but opens up on breathing nicely. It offers a creamy toffee-caramel profile with some bitter wooden and tea-ish aromas. It is balanced but not really complex, to be honest. Nothing special about it (neither flaws nor highlights), to my olfactory cells this is an average nose only.
The taste is rather on the bitter side with grassy, tobacco, green tea and ashy flavours contained in a firm wooden frame. Some barley sugars try to sooth this but they are defeated by the fierce bitter flavours. After some chewing floral and toffee notes join in which balance the taste a little better. Forget about any reduction - this dram just gets (even) flatter and flatter.
The initial mouthfeel is - oops - non-existent. This dram does neither warm nor coat, there is just nothing. The finish is short like a lightning with a minor bitter-astringent flash (tannins). A dram that leaves no impression after swallowing ... is pretty bad.
