Conor
Conor,
Meringue nose. Hint of lemon. Very floral with heavy jolly rancher notes. Mild raisin. Gentle mustiness. This is primarily used as one of the ingredients for Johnny walker blends which is probably where it belongs. It isn't bad, just a bit to pretty with no real depth.

Oskari,
Smoky on the first sip after that smooth and easy, for me the smoke wears off quick.

Phil
Phil,
Not my favorite... I just couldn't get past the overwhelming scent of twizzlers and waxy flavor of same. I will certainly finish the bottle, but it might be as the scotch for my Godfather or Rusty Nail.

The pear hits the nose directly followed by a light smoke, Very round taste filled with fruits together with a small peaty flavor, Long finish with a beautiful lingering smoke,

Very nice dram. Malty with flavors of berries , chocolate and a touch of leather. I’ve had a number of bottles. Consistently fine and very drinkable. Modest price belies this tasty malt and refreshing finish. One of my “go to” drams.

Very smooth but not too light. Flavor is a bit sweet, but the complexity and smoothness is impressive at this price point. Great every day scotch.

Very good Speysider; light and fruity on the nose with a sweet, spicy palate. First impressions were not great, but this dram definitely grows on me. Very good overall.
