N: Honeycomb, caramel, sweet nectar.  Butter.  Custard.  A little smoke.
P: Wonderful mouth feel, just velvety.  More honey, exotic floral notes, yum, yum, yum.
F: Complex, waves of citrus.  Silky.
Stunning.  The texture is perfection.

Butter, wood, citrus, velvety.  Great  scotch! 
Dave
 
So different and unusual.  Apple Pie spice and cinnamon and sugar.  Love the taste and the sweet iced teas come through in the finish.  Love it.   
Adam
 
Nose is aromatic and fruity, vanilla, with citrus/lemons.  Palate... oh yes.  A great level of sweetness and, for the age, I'm not sure where the tannins went.  Great fruits, and that Jolly Rancher watermelon thing in some of the first sips (it later disappears).  Coconut hints, almonds.  Buttery, "round," and mouth-filling, this isn't massively complex whisky, but is super-enjoyable and pretty great stuff.  B+/A-

Nose is raisins, cinnamon bread.  Palate is hot! Better with water. Beer-like, candy cane and mint.  The finish is very minty.
