This bottle wasn't mine, but my wife's grandfather only drinks scotch with me, so I've had more than my fair share of the bottle and I feel qualified to evaluate it. It was opened at Christmas and finished this past weekend. Full disclosure: I'm not a huge fan of sherry-bomb type whiskies. Read at your own discretion.
Nose: Raisins, figs, green apples, vanilla
Body: Very rich and full bodied. Very pleasant mouthfeel
Palate: The development is where this malt really shines. Initial notes of raisins/dates and some caramelized sugar, developping to red licorice, finishing with dark cherries.
Finish: medium-long with more dark cherries, and subtle notes of black pepper and oak
Overall, this bottle was very good. Not mind-blowing, but above average, for sure.
