Lovely sweet aromas of butterscotch, honey and chocolate, with some faint salt and oakspice on the palate. World Whiskies Awards 2012 - Best Highland 13 to 20 years

Nose: Sherbert, red berries, lemons and a little bit of rich fruit that’s almost on the turn
Palate: Sugar sweetness quickly leading to dry wood, with some dried apricots and raisins. Water brings out more fresh sweet and sour fruit – plums and their stones.
Finish: Long with dry wood and apples.
Comment: Quite different to the 12, richer, more refined and less ‘filthy’.

I was given a bottle of the 17yr old as a birthday present on my 70th . I was amazed at the taste and smoothness , it is a magnificent whisky . I will have to keep this away at the back of the cupboard .

just bought this at duty free and was so pleased after just the first taste. Cant believe what a difference a further 5 yrs in the barrel makes over the 12 yr old. This whisky is superb and one of my new favourites. In-laws are off abroad soon, better put an order in!!!

Really good! I was tempted to get the 21yo but went for this instead, even more tempted now as the 17yo is very nice...

After years of trying single malt after single malt i now drink only this one. Best whiskey ive ever had in the sub £50 category. simply divine.

In my view the star of the range, even better than the 21yo. It is a complex whisky with delicious sweet and salty notes. Can't go wrong with this one.

My favourite on the OP range. Beautiful, balanced, complex on the nose and smooth and soothing on the palate. Great whisky.

Very interesting and relaxing, with pleasant notes of coconut and pineapple. Very unusual and a must try! In my top 15 for sure. Nice value for a 17 year old, as well.
