This is a by-the-fireplace-in-a-tweed-jacket scotch.

On the nose, the strongest notes were those of banana. Medium notes included vanilla and caramel; and light notes: nut and clove. Very soft and not aggressive.

The high notes started with some chutzpah. Strong and harsh. Oak-y, fruity (pear?), and lightly peaty. There was additional complexity beyond what I could taste. I feel like I would need to have more to have a full grasp of what's happening.

For the low notes, there was a medium tail. Nut, spice, oat and clove notes smoothly finished off this scotch.

have you tried A'Bunadh? If you like this at 40% you might indeed get a kick out of its cask strength sibling.
