Well, I am aware that my review will add nothing to what has already been said, but I like this so much I just need to post it!

For me this manages to cram everything I like about scotch onto one delicious bottle. And in balance... The smokey/sherried nose... the honey & heather on the tip of your tongue along with toffee, salt & fruity brown sugar on the palate... then that sweet & peppery finish... LOVE IT!!

The only thing that could improve this i.m.o is if it had more body to it. A 46% bottling would have served it well I think.

What I love it the balance of sweet & smokey - the waves of smoke are subtle but most definitely present, and seem to come and go as you sip.

Definitely one of my 3 desert island drams, along with Lag'16 & Glenfarclas 15
