The 12 year old cask strength is a must buy. Just adribble of water is needed to open up the taste.
The 17 year old is the smoothest whisky I've tasted. I'd go into great detail about how smooth it is but I've done it already on this forum and doing it again would be taking it too far.

It was the first malt I was tasting at the event, so my palate wasnt really open yet. But it indeed needs a bit of water to open up. At 57.2% and a whole festival in front a wise thing anyway
My initial note had smoke and earthy tones without water, and with water more fruit and sweeter tones. But I really should give this expression more time later for a proper note. Wasnt bad at all though
The 10 and 17 year olds however have never disappointed.
I've also tried an OB single cask from 1971 (Cask No. 4855 from memory?) that was about 28 or 29 years old, and this was spectacular.
