Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by the Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Dark chocolate and glacé cherries, with apple and creamy vanilla-infused crême brûlée.

    Palate: Thick and fruit, with cream, stewed apple, candied orange and sweet vanilla.

    Finish: Dry, with lingering spice.

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Dark chocolate, glacé cherries, rich fruit, cream and biscuits. Suggestions of cherry blossom and crème brûlée, the latter marrying the cream, dark notes, biscuity vanilla and sugary sweetness together nicely.

    Palate: Thick, with lots of cream running on to sweet cherry, stewed apple and orange peel. Water brings out more sweet vanilla from the creaminess.

    Finish: Dry, with sharp oak and spice.

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Rich, plush aromas of malt, biscuits and toffee.

    Palate: The rich toffee and malt continues on to the palate, with toasty, spicy oak balancing things out. Well-made dram, with everything in proportion.

    Finish: Sweet spice and toasty oak, with a malty backbone that persists.

    I don't like whisky (the blasphemy!), but tried this one on ice. It was nice. No smoke taste note, which is great if you don't generally like whisky... A safe gift. Would try again.

    This scotch is delicious and flavorful. I was blown away the first time I tried it.The 12 and 15 yr old are excellent but the 18 is so rich and complex. You have to get a bottle of this.

    For the age I was a bit disappointed in the experience as a newer scotch enthusiast. I picked up strong notes of crispy apple with a hint of rye in the back. Some tiny sweet notes that I can't put my finger on. The palate I got more of that Speyside crispy apple with a subtle spiciness of the rye as well. The finish is a bit punchy; some spices are left on the tongue.

    Great. Pay more or less for other ideas but this single malt won its awards for a reason. Value. Enjoy.

    Overtones of creosote and hamster dander. Finisher like a sea anemone with a breathing apparatus. Completely carnivorous nose with hints of sponge and spatzle. Totally obsequious.

    At first glance a very attractive bottle with a smooth mild thin bodied whiskey with a almost bubble gum candy like taste.

    Terrific scotch for this price point. Lovely honey sweet notes on opening followed by a spicy, citrus and chocolate. It doesn''t last long enough on the way down the throat but excellent none the less. Just a bit too sweet for my liking.

    Simply put - THE BEST Speyside Single Malt I''ve ever tasted! Very smooth and very sweet. Zero peat. Perfect. Great value for money too - you won''t just be buying the one.

    This is by far one of the best value for money 18yr old scotches. Tastes like the 15yr old glenlivet but with more OOMPH dark chocolate stewed fruit flavours. due to its 43% bottling (nice). The tasting notes are spot on, very good whisky. However, one thing to note is that this whisky is peatless, literally 0 peat or smoke. Overall, Good dram, and good value for money. Ideal for people that dosen''t like peat.

    When it hits the palate the overwhelming taste of milk chocolate explodes! unfortunately the flavours fade quickly and over all i was not overly impressed with anything lasting, oak and nutty, but quickly fades, not worth the price or the hype in a scotch that is aged 18 years.
