Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky
Sweet fresh apricots, oats and malt. Slightly phenolic with magic markers and ash.
Big maltiness, rich breadiness that is quite toasty. Grilled cheese sandwich. Hay.
Simple, malty, and easy drinking. Feels like it is on the verge of exploding with heights of flavours, but never really takes off. But this is not necessarily a bad thing. Rounded, straighforward, very pleasant and hearty whisky.

Smooth with a lovely afterglow, good enough to rub shoulders with Bushmills and many others.

Light amber (seems like no colourant is present)
Rosewater, turkish delight, blueberries, confectionary, candied fruits, wood, honey
Wood, creamy honey, menthol, with perhaps a hint of engine oil (?)
Dry, long lasting, refreshing
Well worth the money!

flowery taste, easy drinking. a cheaper and a little oleaginous version of Japanese Suntory Hibiki Whisky 12y. A nice summer drink in my opinion

Martini whiskey.....anytime, any place, any where. The one to have while you're deciding,.....well,.....anything.

This is among my favorites. It is very smooth, maybe even too smooth for some. Clean and refined, and delicious. It has flavor that is full but not overpowering. Leaves a little bit of bitterness behind to remember it by.
