When nosing this whiskey, I can't help thinking that I'm smelling a really good blend. It reminds me of Teacher's, except it has an extra roundness, affability, and maltiness that sets it apart from the blends.
The nose has tart citrus, smoke, peat, flowers, and honey-sweetness.
On the tongue, there is no disappointment whatsoever: sweet, salty, smokey, fruity, smooth.
This 15-year bottle ought to have the same reputation as the 18: as a good all-rounder. It may not have the richness of the 18, but it is undoubtedly an all-rounder, so much that I would have no way of making a regional placement if I tasted it with a blindfold on.
