"After a change of style it has comfortably reverted back to its sophisticated, mildly erotic old self. One of the most beautiful, complex and stunningly structured whiskies created. Truly the epitome of great Scotch." - Jim Murray
Tasting Note: Deep, balanced and elegant with hints of oak, smoke and vanilla. Full, complex vibrant honey sweetness and creamy vanilla flavours with hints of oak and peat smoke. Long, lightly smoky finish with vanilla and finally a hint of salt.
