This is an outstanding expression, all zippy spice from some virgin French oak, and scattergun oak and malt, like a couple of playful kittens tumbling over each other. This whisky is in our Get Wood tasting

Nose: Sweet, rich. Honey and vanilla, with caramel. Rich Marzipan. Palate: Oak with toasted almonds and vanilla. Finish: Toasted almonds, assorted nuts, and oak.

I tried this single malt in a Whisky event together The Glenlivet 18yrs, and i must say i rather prefer the 15yrs than the 18yrs.

I think the 15 and 18 are in the same ball park, the 12 is too bland for me but the wood in the 15 spices it up enough for my unsubtle palate. Tony
