I've had this about 6 months ago and honestly it wasn't all that, however one of my friend let me taste a new bottle just opened a week ago and I was floored. I think what I tried must have been exposed to oxidization and was probably at the tail end of the whisky. This was a centennial taste for me, because it was my 100th whisky tasted. Wow!!! The nose was great. Great combination of sweetness and uniqueness. It had a resemblance to an HP 30 and Old Pultney 21 nose. Taste was so bold, that I actually added water. I don't even like to do that on cask strength bourbons like handy and taylor. That was impressive. With water, it was tamed but still wonderfully bold. Classic balvenie flavors, but to the max. The finish was great as well. I'd say medium length and very drying. I rate this up there with the HP 30 and Glenmorangie Signet. Excellent whisky!!!
