Nose: This one has a great nose! with a lot of vanilla, pears, sweet malty goodness, wood spices and a dash of Cinnamon.

Palate: The palate is a bit rough in my opinion : It’s quite malty, creamy but not very complex, and is a bit of a let down after the promising nose.

Finish: Bitter wood and some mint.

At this price it offers a great nose with a mediocre palate. Bottle presentation with the little monkeys is also cool. But, it’s not one of my Favorites.

The only two adequate glasses of this were my first, from there it's been all downhill. I still have more than half a bottle, and I've decided to use it as a mixer. I was adding Laphroaig which beefed it up a little but this seems like a waste of very good laphroaig! I do think this is overrated whisky in some circles, palate below average and short length.
