The angels left a lot of this, and I can't for the life of me imagine why. This is one of the best grain whiskies, if not the best grain whisky I've ever tasted. It is sweet and heavy on the tongue, with plenty of fruit and a fresh note of mint cutting through. With water it turns buttery and syrupy, with a finish that lasted for at least 18 hours. I could still taste it the next morning. After breakfast.


I like this a lot.
