THIS is a dram worth paying for.

Nose: Smells like Christmas basically, fruit cake, pine, brackish water and the outdoors generally. It's not an ATG nose but it hints at what's coming.

Mouth: Surrenders quite surprisingly after a really busy introduction. Spice and smoke have a wrestle up front as the whisky finds every sparkle in your mouth. Christmas again, spice before it settles into a delicious oily, smoky treat, but restrained by spice and gentle syrup. Special stuff.

After: Goes down like water but what it leaves behind just never seems to end - extraordinary finish with an ever-changing character that gives you something new with each breath. Something burnt there that I do not love but everything else is spectacular.

Well, I was getting warmer at least.

Oh, and as long as I'm commenting, I'll save the next guy from asking: What batch number is this? (Oogie fanatics always want to know what batch a review is from.)

If you think it's bliss now, I hate to tell you that it was even better about eight or nine years ago when it contained some much older spirit mixed in
