A very hard to find premium blend, but worth the search. These notes were based on a small(ish) pour at WhiskyLive London 2013 but it was very impressive. It was perhaps my highlight of the show (along with new make Glenlivet) and another whisky off my list of 101 World Whiskies to Try Before You Die. The nose was rich, spicy and chocolaty. Reminded me a little of hot cocoa, which was perfect for the snowy day that I tried it. The taste is sweet, with more chocolate, vanilla and spice. Very integrated and yet I really got the lighter, sweeter grain whisky notes in this blend. The finish is long and has some mint (perfect with the cocoa notes). A true blend of grain and malt, the grain has equal billing in this expression, it is not just filler to make up volume or playing second fiddle to the malts.
