A sharper nose than its predecessor (note increased ABV), very malty and very much smelling like an improved version of the old 10 year. Much of the fartyness has been eliminated. Cashews are back for sure.
Palate is bigger and makes more of a statement, though still restrained, slightly sweeter with more depth, and altogether better. If this was your thing before, you're really gonna like it now I'd think.
It's an improvement but still not out of the C's, average and enjoyable and in no way bad whisky. The sort of thing I'd be happy to find being served on a plane.
