Score: 97 out of 100
Amazingly, my tasting notes for the weaker version are exactly the same as for this sea facing monster. Except here the enormity has risen up by a significant factor, as has the intensity of each vital cog in its make-up. Perhaps the only change is the honey thread to the sweetness that pervades throughout. Otherwise, identical. A wondrous, take it with you when you die malt that is easily a contender for whisky of the year.
