    2oz pour Sample rating: +5. I compared this side by side with a slightly cheaper Lagavulin 16... and I would give that dram a slight edge at +5.5. Look. This is a fine lightly peated, well-balanced Scotch that I would not be upset at tasting. But it's ~100-110 USD in my parts, and it's on the fringes of purchasability at that price, especially when I can get a better whisky in the Lagavulin 16 for 30 bucks less. This is such a pleasant and refined hickory smoke on the nose. The balance on the palate is amazing with Speyside fruitiness mixed with creamy caramel and an obvious, but not overpowering smoke. It just does not have the rewarding Islay finish for rainy days, and drops off quite quickly after swallowing. Comparing within the same distillery: the Benromach 10 Imperial Proof is cheaper and better. I would buy that instead.

    Representing speyside findhorn river Nose: malty, light peat and smoke, oak, orange cream, caramel sneaks in later. Later more sweet fruit. Sweet and smoky. Mmmm later a little burnt caramel. Body: smooth, firm, medium and oily Palate: yum! Starts with oak, fruitcake and vanilla cake. Slight cinnamon spice Finish: Love love love the late smoke, reminds me of a springbank 15 in that manner. Medium, warming. Note: really well balanced fruity sherry nose with sweet bourbon and smoky finish. This is excellent! Really easy to drink but has complexity that slows you down to appreciate it. Yum.
