    Light, dry and definitely a hint of ginger - almost refreshing. Lacks body and finish, but a nice summer whisky.

    Just as "Bifter" said; "Young, hot and one dimensional.".

    Lots of body and flavour, and very smooth. Tasting notes are the most accurately descriptive I’ve read. Definitely a quality blended whisky that kicks a lot of single malts in the same price bracket into the long grass. I was a single malt whisky snob until trying this whisky - not any more! The heritage of the whisky also supplies a feeling that is as warm as its finish. My rating here reflects the above and the price I paid (?25).

    Better than most entry level single malts, despite its branded credentials, it displays a wonderful complexity and sophisticated dryness on the palate, with a hint of peat in the finish. Not too much added caramel and something a bit different - if you are choosing between this and a familiar branded single malt, I would give this one a go

    Somewhat thin but quite smooth. It's in the same class as Monkey Shoulder...a bit sweeter though. Very good value so it gets an extra star.

    A very very good entry level blend. Beautiful light floral flavors, honey, vanilla, and thyme. Great pairing with a cigar or a summery beer.

    Young, hot and one dimensional, dominated by bourbon notes.
