    First impression: nooo, just again an oversherryd whisky (or overaged re-charred or wine cask). Adding much water really opens it up. Also give it time to open up and you're giving yourself a treat! 

    On the nose the orange-y fruity ligth sweety style presents itself (Campbeltown sytle). And this time with that special salty style (hadn't had that in a long time!).

    The taste starts with that fruity ligth sweet orange-y style in a fresh way, then it becomes more creamy and the fruits become thick stewed orange delicatesse with a pinch of salt en some soft smoke comes trough in the back after a few seconds. Lovely!

    The finish is medium to long with first some gentile smoke speaking load where as the fruity style comes trough. It ends slightly drying with some fruity oak. 

    This for 60€? I would buy a few bottles! This is really some Campbeltown stuff! Don't forget to a quite some water and let it breed for at least 15 min.
