I think this is perhaps as close to whisky perfection as anything I have ever drunk, over two decades. Of course, the young(er) fiery peaty smoky Islay charmer is there, but, with a supple yet significant veneer of complexity which comes from maturation over a longer period in sherry and also bourbon barrels. There is sweetness, honey, and freshness, and also magnificent burnished peaty, briny notes, as one would hope for. Adding a little water opens up this marriage of styles even more. It is the best expression of this whisky style I have ever tasted. Expensive, yes, much better to drink than the much vaunted (and much more expensive still) 30 year old Laphroaig. Try to find a generous friend with a bottle and a willingness to share a dram with you !
