Nose: luscious sweetness. I think of fruit (apricot, papaya, peach), white chocolate, slight hint of lemon. Also a bit of fresh sawdust (a smell I happen to love). Neat, there is a slight toasty aroma but with a splash of water it is all perfumed sweetness. It has depth; you feel that the further you stick your nose in the glass, the sweeter and richer it will get. Outstanding.

Taste: sweet and full but also crisp and toasty. Oaky bitterness as it unfolds on the tongue. Strange that I am finding it more bitter than before on this tasting. Nevertheless, the delivery is silky smooth with a fruity tang.

Finish: the fruit and oak vie for attention as it fades. None of the unwanted sour flavours that you sometimes get with wine finishes.

Balance: overall, a wonderful, luxurious dram. Big on sweetness but still well-balanced. An all-around pleasure to drink.

I had a chance to sample this back in November (thank you @aboutchoice!) and in a 'where the heck did that come from?' moment where a note just jumps out at you, I picked up what I can only describe as 'candied grapefruit'. It was really interesting as this sweetened, tart note really fit in with the overall sweet profile of this bottle.

Nice review. I found myself struggling to identify and describe certain aspects of this whiskey, but after reading your review I can identify most of the things you pointed out. Nice tasting.
