Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that doesn't quite mottle. The nose gains more sherry and loses the cedarwood. The body gains more sherry and more of the wine gums, and loses the cedarwood. The finish gains more sherry.
Anyone who says grain whisky can't be interesting is wrong. But don't tell them that - let's keep it to ourselves, right?
One for ending summer evenings.
Technical score: 5/5
Personal preference: I'd like more than one bottle.
