Oh what a nose. Brightly fruity, tangerine, grapefruit, grapes, plums. Lots of cloves as it opens up. A little glue and paint. Beautiful if not overwhelming.
Palate -- just super tasty stuff. Juicyfruit gum all over the place, particularly in the finish. Loads of it. That's just the very dominant flavor here and it continues in medium-length finish. Strawberries and other berries too.
One of those whiskies where I wonder what this tasted like at cask/vatting strength, but what they've done here is just so incredibly drinkable and sprightly and tasty that I can't complain. A/A-
Don't you just love the old price tag on the bottle?
