This is the one that truly made me fall for whiskey and start drinking it seriously. This review is the Cask Strength edition (58.6%).

Nose: For me I get an initial hint of jerky that is quickly replaced with peeled bananas and citrus. There's a pleasant mixture of tangerines with a dash of lime. Overall a very nice and perfumy aroma full of fruit.

Taste: This whiskey is VERY soft in the mouth (that's the triple distillation). It is exceedingly sweet but not in a sugary way. Fruit takes the lead and is with lines of grain and oak interlaced throughout. Vanilla is present but only as a soft base line.

Finish: This is quite full bodied and the finish isn't overly long but that is because it is so exceedingly smooth. Even without water and at such a high ABV%, this is no problem to drink neat.

Overall: This is a great whiskey. It's so smooth it's actually hard to drink it slowly enough to pick out different flavors.
