Drunk neat.

Nose: Strong. Vanilla and spices. Nice.

Taste: Comes in neither cool nor warm. Slightly sweet, with spices coming in as it warms. There is actually not much going on here.

Finish: Big spicy caramel explosion as you swallow, which is quite nice. It leaves rather fast, leaving only a sweet, with a slight woody dryness, coating on the mouth which, unfortunately, overstays its welcome.

Balance: Big taste, especially considering its strength and price point, but at the cost of complexity.

Will I buy it again? No. It tastes big, but it's too simple to be drunk by itself. It could make a fantastic ingredient for mixes, but I'm reviewing it as a whisky drinker, not a cocktail mixer.
