I tried this in a charming pub, Running Footman, Charles Street, Mayfair (just off Berkeley Square).
In Canada as an import it never tastes quite right to me, very phenolic, edgy and heavy.
Here, the same bottle seemed completely different - soft, rich, smoky to be sure (from the peated malt) but very balanced, very much an analogue to, say, Rock Hill Farms or Elmer T. Lee in its fulsome smokiness and sweetness.
I may pick this up at duty free, I am hoping that recent bottlings are aiming for this palate.
One of the things I find about whisky is it can change literally from bottle to bottle. Then too at certain times the batches come out particularly well and uniform-tasting; I am hoping this is the case with this whisky at the moment.
