Tasting Notes

  • 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.

    Incredible whisky. Been tasting a lot lately and this one js a stand out. The tasting notes on here are pretty accurate I think but actually I spent most of my time loving the fact that I struggled to equate the flavour of this beauty with anything else. Its just a pleasure to drink; mouthfeel is lovely and smooth and coats every crevice of the mouth. Nose is wonderful and inviting. The taste carries you away like only the really special whiskies do. Not too powerful and full of sweet flavours. Delicious.

    I'm surprised by many very high scores, and it seen as smooth. I was instantly struck by the strong alcohol taste and thin finish.

    Call me crazy but there's really not much going on here. I'm not saying it's bad but just nothing special. It tastes like a slightly smoother Glenlivet or Glenfiddich. Those were the first single malts I ever had. Having only had blends or Irish and American whiskies prior they seemed great. Now stuff like that does nothing for me. If you want to try something in the light whisky style save some more and get a Glenmorangie 10yr original. It is much more unique than this

    I want to update the last review. I don't think I was totally fair because I expected something different. To me it almost tastes coastal like Oban or Old Pulteney. I find that odd because I believe that this is the highest distillery in Scotland. Odd but not bad because those are two of my favorite whiskies. I like my second glass much more than my first so I would like to give it 4.5 stars now.

    This is not a bad whisky and I'm sure some will love it. For my tastes there are more unique and better whiskies out there. It tastes like a mash up of Glenmorangie 10yr original and Old Pulteney 12 yr both of which I like way more than this. It tastes of salted caramel which is interesting. I live in nyc and most liquor stores here carry this as do many bars. There are much better malts that are harder to find here. I would have give it 3.5 stars if that were an option. Better than the most common malts, but not as good as many others I've had.
