I had it referred to me by Scotte from this forum. I special ordered it and gave it a go. The first time I had it, I didnt enjoy. I think i wasnt feeling well and any alcohol in me wouldnt bear well. But the other night, I had a little more and its got this sneaking sweetness to it that I never noticed. Its very complex, not like Zaya. I find Zaya much more one-dimensional (but what a good dimension that is!) I would compare it more to a Barbandcourt 15 year, but with a slightly bigger bite. It does have a nice mdeium to long finish as well.
