    I noticed the same thing in a recent tasting, I hope Diageo puts some effort into this brand.

    Indeed. For some years the palate, IMO, drifted to an extreme of mineral, "vitamins" taste. Hopefully the course has been reset. The silk and mouthfeel of this current one are really impressive - and the proof is still 90.

    I had some a few weeks ago and I don't know how old the bottling was, but it was pretty vitamin-y. I wasn't bad but it wasn't what you described either.

    I think the batches must vary.

    For me the vitamin note is elusive, sometimes I catch it, sometimes I don't.

    Agree with this. Had another 12 last night with a single ice cube.

    Yep must be quite a bit of variation. The first bottle I had about 4 years ago..now that I think back..had no vitamin taste at all..
