I for one would say this is a good but not a great scotch. With some mature drinkers fawning over the first batch release I expected something more than standard good scotch for $400cnd. This is no better than some $100cnd bottles I have have in my collection. So I will not be opening any of my other bottles of this release and will be trading the remainders for better value bottles.
Sweet medium chocolate, no off notes, but nothing spectacular.
Chocolate, fruit intermingled. Balanced, full but not very complex.
Medium finish. It's good, but not $400cnd good.
