I know - Nick sent me a sample prior to this purchase and it was marvellous. I would never have believed that it was a blend if I hadn't already known.
I have to say that it has changed my opinion of blended whisky totally, (being a teenager of the 70's); and if other blenders follow suit with such fantastic expressions, then bring them on.
