I am new(er) to scotch, having enjoyed more blended Canadian and Irish whiskeys in the past.

This was a great introduction to a rich, deep smokiness from the double wood, it did not disappoint. There is a sweetness that also made it great for, what I would characterize, as my developing palate. I appreciated the sweetness.

Note: I enjoyed this drink over two cubes, after letting it sit for ~5 minutes...

Any notes/suggestions are more than welcome.

Single malt on ice cubes...?!

I think what @PeatyZealot means is enjoy your whisky any way you like it, but you might enjoy a richer experience of what this bottle has to offer without the ice. Chilling whisky decreases evaporation, which weakens the nose, and of course the melting ice will water down the whisky quite a bit. That said, I drank my single malts with ice for about five years before I graduated to neat. Drink on and enjoy!
