Nose is quite fruity, with notable apple and dried fruit and dry white wine.  Some herbal notes and mild grass.  Slighter notes of vanilla and wood, and nuts.  The palate is sweet and salty and powerful -- wow.  Fruit notes, a very strong herbal presence with grass notes, and spice.  Dry white wine again.  This is balanced and clean and delicious, and a rolling timpani crescendo.  A smooth entry builds to fireworks in the finish, which is long and great.  Salty floral herbal delicious fireworks, and the impressive roll of flavors makes me love whisky all over again.
