Mega is not a suitable word to describe a whisky. But in this case it's accurate. It's a superbly blended drop. It's now become my favourite blend. I love the smoke from JW black but this has more depth, quite a bit more. It's slightly bitter but hugely rewarding, as the bitterness gives it bite. For only a few pounds more than teachers it's an absolute bargain. Much more satisfying than alot of single malts that cost a fair bit more. It's so well blended that my inexperienced palate finds it hard to pick out notes. It's just a great rounded drink.
Nose - Orange and citrus, tar, spice, oak. Palate - Acid, slightly bitter, citrus and spice continues, barley sugar, caramel. Finish - Huge malt hit, medium length and sweetness, Peat/smoke (but in background), battery acid again (but it works).
