The nose is very aromatic with a good balance of bright fruit and some wood. On the palate it is more of the same. The high alcohol content gives plenty of heat but without a burn (if that makes sense). It has a nice long aftertaste which reminds me of boiled peanuts.

I also tried, and preferred, adding a single small ice cube. This helped to reduce the alcohol down to about 50% but also gave an appealing warming/cooling effect at the same time. It also opened up the nose a bit so that I wasn't smelling so much alcohol.

Overall it is a great bottle and I am just sad that I finished it last night.

Sounds quite interesting. Do you know if its single cask?

I don't think so, the bottle and their website says "small batches" and my batch was 0308E.

It is also "non-chill filtered" so when I added the ice cube it got a nice little cloudy effect going.

Truly a very nice whisky. Not one to finish in one night as it will surprise with new discoveries every time you taste it.
