A sweet, honeyed nose with some fruit, maybe apple/banana/peach. Alcohol is very much present. Not much development over 15 minutes.

On the tongue there is much more wood than the nose would have indicated. I am getting a lot of oak. There is some underlying sweetness. Ultimately better than the nose would suggest.

Not much burn, a bit of lingering warmth in the throat. Goes down pretty smooth.

Pretty nice drink, but the nose is not as interesting as it might be. Also, while I don't rate based on price, I would agree that this is overpriced.

I bought it when I thought it would be a collector's item if the SWA won their lawsuit. Oh we'll. I was also disappointed. Even Ralfy liked it better than I did. Mind you, I had only tasted 2-3 single malts and no blends at that time n my life, but I've come back to it since, with no further luck.

I won't have any hesitation finishing the bottle but I also won't be replacing it. Nice packaging too, for what that's worth :).

Packaging is pretty. But not very tasty.....

And the Glen Breton ice wine cask I got At the same time was no better. It has improved slightly in my opinion, with time.

I have subsequently revised my opinion downward slightly; having moved into generally higher ABVs, this one comes out a bit inconsequential.
