My first taste of this when a bottle was all alone on the self in sainsburys reduced to clear for £19-99p discontinued line.one of nicest malts i have tasted still looking out for any more bottles which may be out their.

Really good malt you don't hear a great deal about....worth getting.

Really liked this dram and worth picking it up as it has been discontinued. A great blending malt at the heart of many a fine blend.

I didn't like the finish at all. I prefer Tamdhu or Glen Moray a this price range.

This is fairly average. But for an SM, you're paying for fairly average at this price. If you're new to the SM world you certainly won't be offended, and it's as good a place to start as any. If you know your SM's, then you're probably not looking at this anyway.

Like to try out a few different single malts every winter. So came across this. Agree about the caramel after taste but as I drink whisky witrh crackers and mature cheese, Itried it after a mature goats cheese - big difference and got that after sip bite back

its ok, remember the price paid, its still a 12 year old malt. s.c.

not bad for the initial tasting,i've experienced worse,it's light and carries a unusual aftertaste but enjoyable malt all the same,would certainly recommend to first time tipplers

Shouldn't expect too much at this price. Almost put off by that sickly looking blue tube. Not undrinkable, but does remind me of butter well past it's sell by date. The first SM I've come across that I definately won't be buying again.

Not impressed.Stong aftertaste of butter makes this one to avoid unless you like that sort of thing

I would say this is a very gentle malt indeed, much like the Tomintoul 10 YO. I think it's an excellent malt for the price and can anyone else smell frying butter?!

Just picked up a bottle recently. First speyside i've ever had. Most enjoyable.

Reminds me of the Auchentoshan 3 wood (yes I know that's a Lowland) without the edges or the hefty price tag. Complex nose and pallete with a smooth finish. A good Speyside.

Disagree. No better or worse than many in this price range.

Death by caramel. Avoid.
