I've had more flavourful drams but not more rewarding. In the end, if I had to choose a desert island scotch it would be this one. It has a bit of everything. The smoke and pepper is there but it gives way to the barley sugar. The medicinal vibe is there but it gives way to the peat. It's the ultimate all-rounder. I've had much more expensive drams but none that I'd rather commit to.

Post note - It's worth mentioning also the balance of sweetness in this bottle. For me it gets it just right. It's PH7 on the sugar scale, completely balanced. You could drink it non stop for days and not be sick of it.

Also I will add further that it is still the most raw single malt I've tasted. It clearly has no aspirations to be a mass market leader and I love it for that.
