Karolis,
I found it lacking taste compared to the the other two in the box

Ben,
Nose: caramel, burnt toffee, butterscotch, Taste: Moist buttery arrival, light smokey and peaty notes, candid fruit. Bottled at 46% some heat on the finish without water. With water and some time a sweetness of some honey vanilla creep in as well as some cereal notes at the top of the glass.

Mark,
Smoother than expected. Peaty, but not overpowering. Great for an intro to peatier scotch’s
 
Dave
Dave,
I enjoy peaty Scotch and this was a milder peat to me. It was tasty, with a nice, smooth vanilla/honey finish and a nifty nose of the sea. If Laphroaig or Ardbeg are too peaty for you, then the mildness of this might work for you.
 
William
William,
Unique for a speyside. Heavily peated but I feel that it cuts off the other flavors before they can develop
 
Jacob
Jacob,
I love me some peat... but it was just ok.
 
Michael
Michael,
Its good but if you like the peat there are better drams.
 
Christine
Christine,
Smokey and sweet - nice and rich. A little extra kick from the 46% alcohol content, but it actually complements the flavor. Would never have guessed this was a Speyside - much more like an Islay!
 
Jedediah
Jedediah,
Not something I liked a bit to smoky for me
 
Daniel
Daniel,
It's a good scotch. Phenols overwhelms the smoke more than I prefer with a bit of a noticable burn that lasts. The honey does come out great with the smoke and a little vanilla. Overall pretty good for a 10 year.
 
Tristan
Tristan,
Apple peel and spice on the nose. Oily and creamy palate with notes of custard and baking spice. I would drink this again.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Tasty, beautiful, well-balanced whisky. Not what I was expecting from a Speyside and surprisingly low price point.

Smokey, with a good dose of phenols.
 
Polona
Polona,
Strong peaty - farmy, mineraly Not balanced sweetness in the taste
 
Robert
Robert,
too much of a smoke flavor, tastes like someone dropped some liquid smoke into the bottle
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Great flavor. Smooth and smokey finish. If you like scotch, this is very pleasant.
 
Richard
Richard,
Great for the price
 
Alex
Alex,
Nicely smoky with just enough sweet to notice it; the peat is not over baring at all. Makes for a very nice drink to sip.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Spicy on the first sip, but it smooths out on the second sip. Sweet on the nose with an awesome smokey peat to round it out.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Delicious! The aroma is dominated by honey, and it hits hard on the first sip. It's light on the smoke. A very 'warm' scotch.
