A very balanced nose, you know this is going to be a very good, safe, but not quite exceptional dram. Don't get me wrong, I love this expression, but in my limited experience, it doesn't quite touch 90. The nose has a distinct sweet and perfect woodiness which is missing from the younger 12 and 15 year olds. This is the ideal every-mans mid to high end scotch. No one would be offended by its offering after dinner. I should add that it is great value for an 18yr old, and is a perfect introduction to more sophisticated older drams. Would I buy this again? Yes I would. Value + Taste = Keeper.
