    I bought this because it was an unbelievable deal. I have read all the reviews and for the life of me don't understand where all the straight alcohol overpowering people are coming from. It is incredibly smooth and complex. I will be buying many more bottles in the future love it.

    Here in the US it's 43%. And under $25 before tax. I first heard about it (and also Old Pulteney) from a certain Youtube personality/institution who tends to wear a plaid jacket and a Scotch bonnet, who said that it is "everything Glenlivet should be". And I like Glenlivet 12, but only buy it on sale. When basic "glens" aren't on sale I'd rather spend more and try a premium malt. I won't get into tasting notes, but I've given this as gift to malt newbies and it's a great budget intro (it costs way more in other states). I tend to keep one in my cabinet for those occasions when I don't want to deplete other bottles. Sure, I love my Islays as well as Craigellachie, Aberlour, Highland Park, Macallan, and I like 46% and no chill filtration and no colorant, but I also like value. This and Old Pulteney 12 are well-kept secrets, I almost fear talking about it :) My rating of 5 stars is based on value. It's not the most complex or unique malt, but it's full-bodied. Don't spend on it more than on Glenmorangie 10 or Old Pulteney 12.

    Like one of the previous reviewers, I just could not get past the heavy alcohol taste that just obliterated anything subtle. This was actually an impulse buy that was on sale, now I think I know why. Cannot recommend this, spend a bit more and get something better.

    Very smooth and goes down easy with a balanced light fruity flavor. Not a bold flavor that some seek but then again I like light beer and can't stand IPAs. Great for sipping with or without a cube of ice.

    It's my go-to for my scotch fix. It's smooth, clean, not hot. I like the highlands as an evening sipper. Glad it's so good, the price is equally nice. I have turned many scotch drinkers on to Speyburn 10.

    The straight alcohol taste overpowers all other tastes advertised. I struggled to get through this bottle. I may only be a scotch whiskey drink for a few years and may not have experienced all, but... try something else or spend $10 more and get some Glenlivet 12.

    After drinking this I can't believe the price easily could be an everyday after work drink.

    I pretty much agree word for word with the anonymous reviewer prior to my review I wanted to buy this because in my specialist book this whisky was written up as sweet although its score wasn't so high and I am glad I got to taste this for free recently. I would have been very dissapointed if I had bought it Pretty much a dissapointing whisky!

    Ok the good reviews convinced me to try to save 20 bucks and try this. I’m sorry, it’s just not very good. I will agree that it has some pleasant notes, but there’s just no body. It just tastes thinned. And it does lack the aroma as well. I think it’s prices appropriately.

    Can't judge this bottle by the nose up front. But it has a very balanced flavor between sweet and smoky. I agree with JJR, it seams to develop with a little sitting. A touch of warm caramel on the nose and good malty smoky finish. Their seems to be a flavor I can't identify but I like it. Can't beat the price and quality. I can't wait to smell the bottom of my glass when the last of the dram evaporates in the morning.

    Nice flavor. I just bought a bottle this evening. I'll be honest, I didn't like the nose right off the bat (thus 4, as opposed to 5 stars), however I'm a little biased regarding the nose of the less peaty drams, such as this one, so one may want to take that bias into account. I poured a dram and let it breathe for 10 minutes or so. I must say that I am pleasantly surprised. A very pleasant and interesting flavor indeed. I plan to have another dram with a cigar tomorrow evening. I think it will be a perfect complement to a smooth, yet strong stogie, like a La Gloria Cubans Serie N. Looking forward to it. Cant' beat the price on a single malt of this caliber either!

    It has a smooth and sweet start and a wee bit of smoke on the finish for a perfect combination - excellent!

    I can't afford Lagavulin and this is an excellent, affordable compromise, with nice depth to the flavor. Very smooth.

    Nose (undiluted) Yes, Some vague, soft red fruits and...prunes? Citrus waves at you after a few minutes of airing out. Quite a very restrained nose, but very pleasing to my senses, none the less. Hints of vanilla behind all of the fruity, honeyed goodness. Speyside to a "T". Palate (undiluted) The notes on the box are accurate for a change, this is fairly honeyed. A light bodied offering of vanilla, pretty sweet initially (don't worry, not like a cloying low-quality blend or anything like that), lots of caramel, does some decent drying with a bit of oak, a small puff of smoke, very shy peat, and maybe some white pepper, if that's not my imagination. This isn't the least subtle of malts. Finish (undiluted) A pretty small puff of smoke and faint, dank wood. It lingers long enough that I do not call it a low-quality affair that ends just about abruptly, but it is on the short side for a malt.
