Smells so good, you don't know if you should drink it or dab it behind your ears. I do both.

Wow.. This is seriously rich.. Sweet and smokey.. Full on depth to die for at a bargain price, go buy.

Extremely good. Fruity - natch - but with peppery, spicy smoke too. Bargain at the current price. Drinking the 1993 so cant vouch for more recent incarnations.

It's fine whisky - smooth and complex. I'll get it again at some point.

This expression evokes entirely different imagery: Where the 12/yo gives me this complex rustic spice, the '93 Dist. Ed. gives me the warmth and comfort more rich and deep. Its a great contender to what I feel some of the other Speyside distilleries are trying to achieve in their standard bottlings.

Lots of distilleries bring out 'special edition' finishes to disguise poor house malts. Not so with this one - the gentle Port Wood enhances an already superb whisky. This is a top notch malt but beware it is very drinkable!

Superb. With all the subtle floral and honey notes of the 12 YO but with a burst of plum and raisin on the finish. Light but elegant and complex; someone who had never tried it before said "This is so soft and subtle you could drink it happily with your smoked fish and scrambled egg breakfast!" 90/100

This is a very interesting whisky. The port finish is a very subtle effect and personally I'd have liked a little more. Having said that, this definitely does (as mentioned above) have complexity and depth, and also a vibrant burst of flavour and long finish. Personally I prefer the more-rounded flavour of the Dalwhinnie Distiller's Edition, but this makes a great addition to the few whiskies I have as it's a more unusual whisky.

Not usually a malt whiskey buff but this was very very nice. Will definitely try it again. Bought for me as a Christmas pressie by a friend.
