    [December, 2016]  I found this dram in an advents calendar sampled by Cadenhead.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My
    notes state it is okay to drink but nothing to remember.

    Nose very nice - light ash on the palate - altogether too racy for his age and just average average yummy
