The taste is very good, round and rich in flavors. Wood (but not very burned), dried apricots, raisins, honey and pastry. The taste just lingers off, and becomes a nice and easy finish. A bit higher ABV, perhaps 46 %, would have made the finish a bit longer, and better, in my opinion.
A bit of water does this whisky easier for the nose. The taste is somewhat the same, but it lets the sweeter notes become more prominent. A great everyday dram, and I give this whisky 86/100 (21/22/21/22).
