Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Fresh and fruity – freshly cut melon, green apple and pear – along with hot toast and honey with a sprinkling of freshly grated nutmeg.
Palate: Lovely smooth texture, with rich honeyed fruit freshened up with crisp apple notes. Gentle, sweet spice adds to the complexity. Very drinkable.
Finish: The rich mouthfeel lingers, with the honeyed fruit lasting longest. Good balance.
Comment: A lovely dram that will please lovers of fresh, fruity whiskies.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Colour: Full, golden yellow.
Nose: Almost incense-like, heather honey with a fruity softness, notes of pineapple, toast and cereal. Syrupy, lingering on the tongue like a liqueur.
Body: Full bodied.
Finish: Full flavour, the perfume characteristics become more spicy, with a bitter hint of Seville oranges in a decidedly dry finish.

Better than many of tried that are hundreds and thousands more per bottle!
Very fruity. Not as smooth as I expected, but a good crisp whisky. Enjoyed at origin in Scotland!
Received as a gift and definitely one of my favorites. Very smooth and a pleasure to enjoy.
Sweet fruity taste with a bit spicy finish. At this price, can’t complain.

My dad's favourite

A great tasting dram! Easy to drink with a fruity taste. Syrupy with a dry short finish. Definitely in my top 10
Superb whisky, has now become my new favourite over Edradour
Nose: wood, smoke and caramel Taste: wood, citrus, honey, (during and after) spice Texture (on tongue): smooth, syrupy Balance: depends how much you drink
A nice drink!!!
1st time I have tried this weekend and I am very impress. Quite rich and lovely smooth texture.
Surprisingly sweet for a highland malt. Big notes of spice on the nose, smoother than bigger, more expensive brands on the way down. Overall impressed. Quaffable - would certainly buy again for visitors and the like.
Hands down the best I've tried. And I have had JW Blue, royal salute, Oban, Belvinie and others.
MIDDLE OF THE ROAD ,,OK FOR THE PRICE RANGE
Very very ordinary taste (((
Very nice for a 12 year old. Smooth and sweet honey with a bit of spice. Excellent value and tastes like an older scotch. I will buy again as this bottle is almost done.
So, a friend of mine who know i love scotch purchase a bottle of the 12-year-old for me. I'm usually a Dewars blend guy, but this stuff is so familiar. No ice, just a splash of water. Thanks, John!
Bought the 12 yr on sale - first try. Very drinkable with a bit of water. Warm Spice on the nose, reminds one of Halloween. A biit peppery on the toungue, with hint of fruit, but not too sweet. Finish is dry but stays on the top of the palette. I normally like the peaty whiskies, and more complex Highlands, but for the price of $30 this is fantastic stuff.
Excellent product. Tastes as good or better than most higher priced scotch whiskeys.
