In my opinion this single malt is too watered down. It seems to me that a lot of what this dram could offer has been drowned out from the distillery. The beautiful nose offers such promise, the palate is however, to light. The inconsistent finish further diminishes this drams impression on you. This would be a stunner if this had a higher ABV like Glenlivet's 16 y.o. but, as is, it's a moderate dram that offers a decent presentation and not much more.
