This is probably the most intensely nutty whisky I've tasted. Mainly almonds, or almond extract. Takes a bit of getting used to.
On the nose there are toasted almonds, and also a decent amount of bourbony oak. Maybe a tad sappy/floral. In the mouth it is full, rich, somewhat oily. Once again that big toasted almond flavour. Reminds me a bit of Auchentoshan Valinch, though much better.
The finish is long a rich. No way would you guess this is a four-year-old malt. At full strength it is hot but still drinkable in small sips. Needs some water to really find its balance. Speaking of balance, this whisky could use more of it. You really have to enjoy this nutty style of malt to love it. But either way, you can't deny it is a tasty and well-made malt with a good degree of complexity.
