    What a monster! Rich, complex and very well layered. This whisky really needs some time in your glass and hand warming to really open up and spread the lush and superbly layered flavours. This ticks all the boxes for me! I can easily spend hours just sniffing this mesmerizingly good whisky. This dram takes you from the dark smokey aromas to the fresh fruits and delicate berries and back to the dark side again. 

    Let’s be short about it this: it's mesmerizingly good.
