Not much going on in the nose -- a little astringent, some vanilla. So the palate is a pleasant surprise -- there's that sort of lowland-bourbon-casked-spice with quite a bit of sweetness. At this very high ABV I can still drink it neat and enjoy it -- it's an assault in a good way. Water brings out some grassy flavors as well. This whisky seems to fit neatly along with some other notable spicy-high-strength Lowlanders I've tasted (Linlithgow 1982 Duncan Taylor pops to mind). I do really enjoy this one quite a bit, both without water (for the kick-in-the-face of flavor... but it is admittedly anesthetizing) and with it (for a gentler experience).
N: Nose is initially faint, but then some camphor and lemon. P: Hits the tongue oily but then evaporates fast, a nice tactile combo. Lemon, sugar, and pepper. F: Long. This is all mouth-feel to me, the flavor is light but the experience is great. Maybe I'm just a high abv junkie, but this very drinkable at the abv.
