My absolute favourite single malt (only because I can’t afford/get my hands on the 15 year old!)! Perfect marriage of Highland and Island styles. A grown-ups Highland Park.
This is my current fav scotch single malt. Nice well rounded, sweet oaked flavour. Plenty of deep complexity, very very enjoyable whisky, and proving to be a great seller.
