Distribution of ratings for this:
This whisky is outstanding for a 10 year old. The smoke is perfect and not overpowering.
On the Nose: Hint of freshly lit matchstick (which I much prefer over a smoky and earthy peat), vanilla, toffee, faint hint of sea salt, Enticing yet not overpowering. Makes me want to take a sip.
On the Palate: mild smoke, sea salt, toffee, chocolate, fruity
Finish: faint smoke, sea salt, warmth, smooth with a slight burn of alcohol (which I thoroughly enjoyed).
I prefer this whisky over the Glenlivet 18, Highland Park 18, Lagavulin 16. Glennfiddich 15 is better (unless you're looking for smoky) and cheaper Johnnie Walker Blue is the best but not worth the price.
