Stunning opening with great display of fresh fruit, red berries, clean sherry, toasty nuts and fine oak. Almost explodes into the mouth then takes luxuriant flow across the palate dropping wave upon wave of superb flavours. Barley sugar and vanilla are there in the great complexity yet with dignity and in a way very delicate. Wonderful whisky.
Lovely review, and totally correct in my opinion - this is sheer class in a glass (ouch !)
