This dram is a treat. Like the Springbank 10, it has the complexity, mouthfeel and robustness but with a nice subtle touch of peat which is nicely balanced by its soft fruitiness. Great value like SB10 and unchillfiltered with no color added at 46Abv, qualifies for a Ralfy award. For me, it's a poor man's Highland Park 18. A huge compliment.
My expectations were high having recently bought the WIP 7 bourbon cask strength. The 12-year-old did not disappoint. Delightful stuff. Lovely and bright with notes of charcoal, vanilla, juicy fruit and of course the briny character you expect with a Campbeltown.
Aside from it being a great dram, further points must be awarded for transparency - non-chill filtered and natural color. The price point is absolutely superb. Overall it just represents unreal value. If you enjoyed the WIP range you really can't go wrong. This is more refined and sure of itself.
