Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Tasty combination of fruit and spice, with fresh aromas of green apple balanced by richer, spicier notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and Parma violets, along with a touch of milk chocolate.
Palate: Cleaner and fruitier on the palate – cut grass, lemon and orange peel – then richer notes of woody spice arrive.
Finish: The refreshing citrus notes are balanced by the toasty oak.

Decent malt with some good maltiness, but the 18 is much better for not that much more!
A bit disappointed I can say. It is something bitter and not smooth in my palate. Aberlour 12 is a lot better after a comparison I made. Even a Monkey Shoulder is better in my opinion. My style of whiskeys are the Islay peated ones.
Received as a gift. Pleasantly surprised by the taste and smoothness. One of my favorites now.
Really enjoyed it highest quality
Wow what a pleasant suprise I read about this whisky in one of my whisky guides. I never tried it but I tried it on what I read because they said it was sweet and I like sweet Whisky. Boy was I not dissapointed! Lovely flowery scent and a nice color and very sweet. Easy and pleasant to drink. very nice 12 year old whisky good value to.
Was my first and still is my favorite single malt when I don't want to spend more than an hour's pay. Very tasty but on the sweeter side Scotland's best.
As Luke says, it is okay but not the nicest I've ever had. After trying in a bar I decided to get a bottle. However, there is a note in this that is quite unpleasant and takes away from the toffee, caramel notes from the bourbon casking.
Just now learning about scotch. And this one seams to pretty nice. Not to vicious and pretty smooth.
I usually drink Talisker 10, Lagavulin 16,.. certainly not those, but for the price point not too shabby - it will keep you warm on those cool evenings when your on a budget
For the price this an excellent scotch.
For the price point, this is excellent. Don't expect Lagavulin. When compared to blends and other single malts in the $25 to $35 range, this is well worth a try. Nose: oak, Old Grand Dad 86, grass Palate: honey, milk chocolate, oranges, lemon, the body continues to grow more viscous Finish: sherry and rye, oranges, a hint of chocolate, fresh cut grass, very very heavily bodied by the end
Not the worst, however it was definitely far from the best. The taste is a little sweet for me, but for the price the product is not to shabby. It is one of my social bottles that I use to entertain guest.
Fruit first on nose..chocolate milk notes with nice grapefruit pith in the finish. A steal!
Taste of bamboo air freshener, the mix is not pleasant and is the taste equivalent of mixing colors to produce mud.
