    worth every penny
    on the nose immediately phenolic and salty but abiding by the 1 year in the cask 1 minute in the glass rule this dram leveled out beautifully. Liquorice and cashew with a gentle spice. I added two drops of water and again the transformation was a much thicker and smoother mouth feel. Lovely nutty, banana and oat tones. The finish is long and dry. Highly recommended.
