The guy in charge of buying spirits for my local liquor store claims this to be one of his favorite scotches. It's needs a little filtered water to uncover some of its flavors and scents, or else the alcohol will obscure them. But try it both ways to see, it's a fun thing to do. I like 5 parts whiskey to one part filtered water, but some will say 4:1. If you look at my site I've reviewed Springbank 10, and have a great article on dilluted vs undilluted under Noah's Mill bourbon.
Enjoy the heck out of that bottle!
