A very popular Highland dram, with a big sherry presence alongside sweet citrus fruit notes and a faint whiff of brine. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.

    Love this dram excellent for the price. Mostly drink islay whiskies currently but when I want change this is my go to. The fruit flavours are there but very hard to determine, for me its closer to pear than anything else.

    Great price, value for money i must say! The noes shows lingering fruity(citrus) sweetness together with malt. No banana though. Medium, spicy, and fruity on the palate, but a hint of bunfire. Real good balance! - aftertaste is well balanced, no sharpness at all. The fruit stays for quiet a long time. ENJOY

    I loved this scotch. So refreshing and goes well with a log fire burning next to you.

    Wow a 750ml 86 proof single malt 12 yr scotch for under $40?! It seemed too good to be true until I tried it. Spicy, creamy, salty with a little citrous, smokey sweetness and some heat. I'm not tasting the banana but there is a subtle fruit flavor without being overly sweet. I want to add apricot for some reason. It needs a little water or ice to unlock the flavors for the palate to match the nose. The finish is a tad bitter but it doesn't linger and definitely doesn't resemble an immature scotch. It's reminiscent of seawater but I suppose that's its heritage. Either way, it's smooth with a little bite and a flavor that's somewhere between a drier Glenfiddich and fruitier Glenmorangie with more attitude than Red Breast. It's definitely a top choice in its price range with diminishing returns when spending $20 more for something on a higher shelf. This is a must try that could easily turn into a regular sipper. Just grab a bottle as it won't disappoint.

    The best way that I can describe the main flavour that develops in the mouth is of 'bubbly banana'. A very smooth and refreshing taste indeed.

    Bananas, malt, honey and sea salt. Interesting aroma. The taste is even more interesting. I've been a whisky drinker for a long time and I have come to prefer those with a unique taste like this one. I just can't understand why it doesn't have more of a reputation. It's very hard to find in the USA and I live I in New York City. I highly recommend this

    Appreciative of the crafting that goes into this fine scotch. I find it great on the whole, maybe a little underwhelming on the palate compared to the nose and finish but still a great drinking experience.

    Having read the review's I agree that the addition of just a few drops of water brings the Smokey and Salty notes out and smooths out to a lovely long finish.

    The initial dry nose is almost a challenge. You aren't sure just how it is going to end up. But boy does it end up nice.
