    Nose: neat: anise, caramel, vanilla, rye bread. As it opens some the licorice notes seem to dominate. Even later fresh citrus. With water: more caramel and malt takes the wheel on the nose. Orange citrus notes emerge late. Body: neat: medium Palate: neat: licorice, vanilla, toffee, caramel. With water: interestingly I think the water brought out a peppery component I was surprised to see. Finish: medium with sweetness lingering, honey and hints of fresh cut grass. The only issue here is that it’s too short, I just want the flavor to last. Note: this is very nice neat. Amazing no. Very good yes. The licorice and sweetness are interesting. This is a very good dram. Layers of flavor are nice and interesting. Well put together and very smooth. Very enjoyable.

    Nose: sweet, inviting. Caramel. Anise. Oak. Faint sherry and chocolate. Floral herbaceous Body: medium Palate: smoky like whiffs of burnt caramel, sweet vanilla and caramel flavors evolve in waves, this is really really good stuff. Sherry pops out Finish: medium and evolving, only wished it lasted longer but it’s crazy smooth. Note: really incredible juice. So subtle yet distinctive. Smokey, sweet with lingering caramel so good.

    Had at bluefin bay 2019 thanksgiving dinner. It nosed sweet and malty. Initial taste was a little peppery and alcohol forward. But with one ice cube it was very fruity, malty, sweet with vanilla and toffe and a small amount of smoke. Body and finish are medium and really delicious. Maybe not as much stewed fruit as the 15 but really tasty

    Nose: soft, vanilla, caramel, wet oak, brown sugar, baking spices, rye spice later as opens up. reminds me of RR 10 to start but opens and has more layers with time. Very inviting nose. Later dark cherry Body: medium Palate: baking spice, hint of rye, mild cinnamon spiciness, the nuggets more vanilla but actually has more rye notes are present for me at first taste Finish: medium to long and warming. A nice Kentucky hug. Note: A lot of flavor to start. Reminds me of a more flavorful 4R small batch with less rye.

    Representing speyside Lossie river Nose: oaky, malty, peat smoke, old fermented fruit, Body: medium Palate: peppery, spicy, smoky, salty, with water it’s sweat to start but very spicy Finish: medium long and hot Note: good but my least favorite. Water tames the spice and allows sweet to come through.
