My favourite whisky. Unfortunately none in my locality
40% is only a standard because of the taxman - all whisky should be sold at cask strength and watered to taste. Any whisky under 45.8% has been chill filtered and thus lost some of it's flavour in the process.
Some Waitrose stores cleared this at £19.99 (party)
Superb whisky. Like others have said s powerful sherry flavours that scream Christmas to me. Would say "drop" of water for me is not enough. I found 50/50 water and whisky my preferred ratio. It is cask strength (ABV 59%+) afterall. The correct amount of water to add to whisky is the amount of water that gets it to the point where you enjoy it best
