Value for money new expression from Highland Park. Recommended

Enjoyed it. Thoughts are.....
Golden colour, clear, not overly thin but short(ish) legs
Vanilla, fudge, hints of oak, light smokiness. Maybe a touch of citrus on the nose. Imagine eating a Caramac on bonfire night.
Sweet vanilla, followed by a hint of citrus and wood. More citrus and vanilla when a drop water is added. Then spices come through - pepper definitely, touch of mixed spice, and then more peat smoke than found on the nose.
Sweetness gives way to pepper and lingering smokiness. Medium length.
I enjoyed it. Fairly easy to drink, responds well to a drop of water, interesting but not overly complex or full of depth.
46% ABV, official HP bottling, natural colour…
One word: Bargain.
