Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Clean and fresh, with heather honey, pears, a touch of toffee and a soft floral note.
Palate: Bright and fruity, but also rich, with notes of steamed syrup pudding and sponge cake, with a little cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish: Just enough spice to match the fruit. Lovely balance.
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Advocate
Along with Cragganmore, this is one of the underrated members of the original Classic Six. Quite why has always slightly baffled me. OK, it isn't smokey, but the nose has a deep, soft, honeyed sweetness: think caramelized fruits, hints of thick cream, and a light touch of fennel and sharp citrus. Thick in the centre and very gentle, it's that chunkiness in the middle that is the secret to its beauty.

Had this for the first time yesterday. A bit too light in body for me but not a bad drink. Sweet, slightly smokey, a little fruity and very clean. Couple of drops of water help bring down the alcohol and reveal the flavours better with this one. A very decent everyday whiskey.
Smooth, mellow, very easy to drink
This one really needs a little water to take the edge of the harshness. But once this is done you get a fairly straight forward, no fuss, light and fruity tipple. Decent session whisky.
Very simple and subtle, perfect after a Sunday roast. Not a stand out single malt for me though. Would have scored 3.5 if scoring halves was an option. Bare in mind I''m a laphroig/ardbeg drinker when considering my score.
wondefully balanced, a light and fruity malt with a great finish, perfect for when you want something not too smokey
Very lovely. At first I thought a little dull. But after a few days, or weeks, it''s a very pleasant and relaxing dram
Beautiful. On the nose you could smell the honey and summer fruit. I did add a drop of water to it in order to reduce the sharpness in the throat. Very nice whisky.
One of my all time favourites. Fabulous nose heavy on vanilla with pear and apple. Honeyed palate with more apple flowing into a sweet but spicy finish with a tiny hint of smoke. Lovely. A classic Highland Dram.
Wonderful heather and honey with touch of cinnamon - great value 15 year old - great dram
Enjoyable, but not amazing. Good value.
