I've just recently decided to embark upon discovering fine Whisky again after a lay off of a few years. I bought a bottle of this Quarter Cask and tried a few glasses neat, with a drop of water and left for half hour or so... Good god I can't remember tasting such an intense Whisky with so many different defined levels, tastes and surprises in every glass. I can't describe all the different qualities as there was so much going on with it but a clean bite then pepper, peat and sea-salt jump out with a smokey melting finish that lingers... stronger stuff for me at 48% as I prefer 40% but no doubt that this is a class act for real connoisseurs.

After tasting this again I would re-rate this 9.5.. very special Whisky, beautifully smokey with several distinct levels of evolution in the taste.. will be keeping this bottle handy for the biting winter we have down here now..
