Member Ratings and Notes
Has an exotic mintyness that hits at full speed and distinguishes itself from all other scotch.  Has a nice finish if you move it to the roof of your mouth. 
Tasted blind, I immediatly recognized this funky taste as a young Bowmore, but the stong fruitiness I couldn't figure out.  It doesn't have the usual over-ripe taste that I typically dislike in Port (and hence most Port finishes).  At first wierd and unpleasant, then massively enjoyable.  I can see this getting a wide range of ratings.   
Quite a syrupy texture.  Though that would seem to advertise intense sweetness, this is mildly so, with blackberry/prunes/dried fruit flavors in the mouth-coating palate.  An enjoyable glass. 

N: Tea leaves, spices, iodine

P: Flowers with sweet fruits

F: BBQ smoke
