I got this on my 22nd birthday, what a surprise so much blistering oak and red wine tannic's i had to sit back and enjoy it for a while. After some thought it will be a 2 part review with and without water.

With Water- Nose: Red wine notes, a lot of oak on the nose (less than without water), vanilla, caramel, spice, butterscotch. Palate: Immediate hit of oak, vanilla, caramel, with red wine, tannic notes, cocoa, butterscotch and spice. Finish: Oak bomb at the end, with vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, and red wine notes weaving throughout.

Without water- Nose: Overpowering oak, red wine, spice. Palate: Oak bomb, red wine, vanilla, spice and cocoa. Finish: Very oaky with blistering spice and tannic notes to balance out the oak.

Fantastic, a must for any whisky lover.

What batch was this? It's usually on the upper label. I very much enjoyed my batch (still have some) and posted a review.

I tried the 10 year old 25th anniversary edition last week and found it very nice but not appreciably different than the standard bottling (at least not worth the price)

I have a 2013-6. It's "only" 62.95%. IT will be the next one I open. I have 2 more in Florida but haven't seen what batch they are.
