I'm drinking a dram of this as I write this. I bought the bottle on my last trip to Aberdeen. This is a delicious single malt with very complex flavor. Floral, wood, spice and nuts. Wonderfully mild and complex finish as well! As The Flying Scotsman says above, it has a very festive flavor that would fit quite well after a Scotch drinker's Christmas dinner.

Rich amber color, full bodied, may need just a touch of water to open and bring it down from 86 proof. Highly recommended at the price; would love to afford to drink it every day. Online notes tout the nose, but I did not notice it as exceptional. But on the palate... that was something else.

Another festive 'must' for your Christmas dram cupboard, picked up a bottle in Kiev, this dram is robust, and its maturity gives it a big, bold, yet mellow sherry kick. Stewed pears and red apples in here??? Oh yes, I think so! Enjoy responsibly. Slanje...

Was very impressed with this. Loads of flavours and a great finish. Try leaving your emptied glass out overnight and smell it in the morning. Lovely!

Bought a bottle for my father in-laws 60th birthday. Thought he wasnt going to open it for a second! But he did and was kind enough to let me sample a glass or 2, and i must say this a very complex single malt with a lots to offer. Top stuff, just thought it could have given more at 46% or even a little higher.
