In the taste, you get the power, but the flavors is still very elegant. You get all the classic grain stuff like vanilla, honey, some oak due to the age and cask chosen, but also some spices. All the above mentioned things just lingers for quite a while in the finish.
It is a very well balanced whisky and just a tad different from the usual grain whiskies. A very well chosen cask by the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. This needs some water due to the high ABV, but it doesn’t change the whisky much. I will rate this 89/100 (22/22/22/23).
