Which one did you get? I thought the 54.6% one was excellent.

N: butterscotch drizzled on baked bread, tangerine zest, vanilla
P: HOT. bit on honey and butterscotch, lightly oaky
F: long burn, oak notes

with water, similar nose but more bready. Bread, honey, tangerine peels for the palate. I think you can add quite a bit of water to it.

A spritely peppery Teerenpeli 8yo 43% Single Malt from Finland. Lovely coffee notes and with water some good fruit. If it was cheaper i'd get it regularly.

The Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2012. Lucky to get a couple of these - people were arm-wrestling each other to get their hands on this stuff. Not me though, i just pushed in the queue, it's dog eat dog out there.

Speyburn 10. It's kind of a bitter oak but it is nice to have it as a change of pace against sweeter whiskies.
