Lemon zest, icing sugar and green apple skin with vanilla and buttery almond croissant.
Honeyed yet robust and lightly spiced with lemony citrus, vanilla and plenty of spice.
Vanilla oak and enlivening spice.

Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky
Sweet fresh apricots, oats and malt. Slightly phenolic with magic markers and ash.
Big maltiness, rich breadiness that is quite toasty. Grilled cheese sandwich. Hay.
Simple, malty, and easy drinking. Feels like it is on the verge of exploding with heights of flavours, but never really takes off. But this is not necessarily a bad thing. Rounded, straighforward, very pleasant and hearty whisky.

Every bit as good as an Islay Scotch.
I stumbled on this whisky by chance, and was pleasantly surprised by its flavor and drinkability. You don't often find it in your local liquor store, but it is worth the effort to find. Very smooth and light with no bitter aftertaste.
Smooth and light on the pallet. A good whiskey to drink any time.
Light one dimensional
If I ever see this one on the top shelf in a bar - it''s an instant decision. Every time. No smoke - it''s smooth, long and very creamy on the palate. A faultless Irish Single Malt.
Not that great for the price, but drinkable. B'Mills-10 anytime, anyday.
Smooth with a lovely afterglow, good enough to rub shoulders with Bushmills and many others.
Appearance Light amber (seems like no colourant is present) Aroma Rosewater, turkish delight, blueberries, confectionary, candied fruits, wood, honey Palette Wood, creamy honey, menthol, with perhaps a hint of engine oil (?) Finish Dry, long lasting, refreshing Judgement Well worth the money!
flowery taste, easy drinking. a cheaper and a little oleaginous version of Japanese Suntory Hibiki Whisky 12y. A nice summer drink in my opinion
Very smooth,a bit of a slow burner and very seductive.Leaves you looking forward to next glass. Great!
Martini whiskey.....anytime, any place, any where. The one to have while you're deciding,.....well,.....anything.
This is among my favorites. It is very smooth, maybe even too smooth for some. Clean and refined, and delicious. It has flavor that is full but not overpowering. Leaves a little bit of bitterness behind to remember it by.
