    I was impressed by the lingering cherry taste but found the burn a little strong. It does contain a nice hint of vanilla but overall I found it a little lacking for some reason. Maybe the other, higher end versions have a better quality taste and appeal. Overall, I would enjoy this whisky again. I am being generous with 4 stars under the assumption the other versions of this may make up for the slight lacking of taste and quality. overall, it's not that bad. I still enjoyed drinking it.

    Light whisky with some touches of smoke and vanilla. Minimum aftertaste and no body. Not a favorite and in this price category there are much better options.

    A very "soft" whisky and sometimes that's all I want but for the price I want a little more punch. It has it's place but that place is over-priced.

    Quite nice but a bit overpriced for a Speyside copy with no age statement!

    It's a light whisky with a nose of light smoke and oak. It has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel with a rather limited taste of spice, vanilla, oak, and cherries. It has a lingering burn, but the flavor falls away quickly. I'm left with a red cherry taste. A decent blend for the price. Better than JW Red but I prefer a blended malt like Monkey Shoulder for the same price range.

    A thin, disappointing whisky that really only has a bouquet of alcohol and some added notes. The whisky has limited mouth-feel and has little or no aftertaste. It's a whisky for making highballs or other cocktails, not for drinking as a whisky in its own right. I'd only buy it for mixing with soft drinks, not for drinking as a dram.
