    Got the 'new presentation' yesterday. My first speyside. First sips neat were very rich and concentrated. Yes, it's all described below, but definately needs some water added to bring out a taste seperation. Can really taste it's creaminess, and the sherried and malt flavours better. Quite refined with a real long aftertaste that seems to keep on coming. Smooth and drinkable quality, but not too sure yet about the sherried taste.

    I enjoy this malt and think it's great value for money. A little spice and a long finish. I add a splash of club soda to open it up instead of water. Very nice.

    Amazing single malt for the money! Fresh yet profound, robust yet refined, a long long finish that yet never outstays its welcome; by that I mean that for my palate something happens at every moment and every turned corner with this malt...I'm at a loss for words actually...just wish they would go for a craft presentation instead of a branded one; still even with the branding the inherent quality of this product manages to shine through! Long live speyside!

    Superb malt and is the home of the Chivas stable.....redesign of packaging coming through.

    Lovely, light and fruity/spicy single malt. Nice with a few drops tepid water added. Brings out the spices.

    I had a bottle for Xmas from my granddaughter Karla. Thank you very much Karla. It's the best present in the world, beautiful. XXX

    Incredible, nothing more nothing less. To think that this is the main part in Chivas regal 12, simply surprise me. To think that something this great, can be part of something that bad, chocking. Value for money? No doubt.

    Absolutely awesome malt....really enjoyed this delight from the oldest distillery in the highlands.

    I have to be honest - I thought this was awful. Metallic on the nose, bland on the taste, no after taste worth mentioning. I understand it's a budget single malt, but quality has to amount to something surely.

    Shaking off winter with a fine warm scotch.

    smooth and very very sweet, yo much to my palate, but worth a taste

    Palate (undiluted) Initial sip delivers sweet malt, cereal and honey. Mid-palate you have some unmistakable oak and moderate spices of nutmeg and off-putting thyme? Finish (undiluted) Salted dark chocolate leaves the palate somewhat dry, but kinda like chewing a packet of Nutrasweet. You got some chemical flavor almost.

    WHISKEY YES IT IS , I am or was a JW, blue , green and gold drinker as I drink neat. Well I never thought another would pass my lips , and now I must say that I enjoyed this one. Well done Pernod but really Strathisla of Speyside ,I will be a repeat sampler for sure. Enjoyed the whole sip from nose to lips to tongue and throat , a little to also warm the cockles to the toes. Try enjoy but please leave stock for me.

    The 12 year-old is fine, but it improves with age. Go for something older.
