    A little malty on the nose initially with just a slight hint of chocolate. But nothing to get excited about. An up front burn and spice on the palate with a little ginger on the finish. Disappointed overall would never get again.

    Bought from as a gift while on a tour of the distillery. Whilst it is blended, it's blended very carefully with a 12 year old single malt as the youngest in there, and some far older. It has quite a depth to it, without to much peat (smokiness), so it's not as light as a Speyside, or their standalone singles, but it's clean and full-bodied. I got toffee on the palate contra the producer's notes.

    I recommend this as a smooth introduction for those wary of Scotch. Having been blended by committee has resulted in a great, easy, and tasty introduction to Scotland's water-of-life. I can't imagine anyone not finding it pleasant. We introduced it to our Irish dance class and they all liked it, even those that profess a dislike of Scotch. Lovely on it's own, it's also well chosen by the bartenders as it's perfect in a mix and makes a fine Scottish Coffee, kin to the Irish version, both improved with dark chocolate grated over the cream... While I have other preferences, I've enjoyed this, my first Lowland. For what it is, and from how it was appreciated last night at our little Irish gathering, with shortbread, it deserves the full stars...

    A good taste and blended well. Some peet at the end burns a bit but overall great.
