Lincoln,
Very good. Great for sipping or that cocktail before dinner. A little water reduced the "bite", but do not let the ice water down the flavors. A good start for tasting.
 
Matt
Matt,
Fantastic, extremely smooth.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Pear, orange, and marzipan. Leans into Irish whisky territory, tasting like a pot distilled dram similar to Redbreast.
 
Logan
Logan,
Seemed a bit harsh for the sweet flavors it was suppose to have. I think there are better choices for cheaper.

Spicy fruity goodness

Nice blend, very approachable. Nose has hints of vanilla, but is mostly orange zest and cherries. Palate is more orange w/ some chocolate notes. Finish is lasting with some raisins and spice.

Nice floral bouquet

Chris,
Nice flavor, a bit smoky

Devlin,
I loved it, 8.3 out of ten, great nose of vanilla and citrus, palette of vanilla, orange, finish of mild dark chocolate and vegetable pepper spice. Medium to long finish, no smoke, no peat, complex and fun.

One of my favorites. Competes right up there with the best Scotches on the market.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Incredible for a newer scotchy! Smooth, pretty sweet, and light on the finish. Will definitely be buying again.
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Complex and full of flavor. Hints of chocolate, cherry, red apple, malt, with well balance spice on the finish.
 
Matt
Matt,
Grain heavy nose. Notes of toasted grain and caramel apples.
 
Sarah
Sarah,
Full, bold flavor. Bitter but smooth.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Don’t get all the flavors from my first drink, but it is soft and smooth enough that I know I like it and will have it again.

Nice, sweet and a little spice

Katelyn,
If I had to bottle the feeling you get when you are totally relaxed with an ice cream cone on a sunny day, this scotch is close! It was sweet and just fun to enjoy. If you find yourself with a bottle of this, plan to share it with friends, it certainly offers more then you expect from a scotch.

Spicy that lingers

so so.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, rich, Blended Malt Scotch Whisky with a rich & fruity birth; while a rich & complex life leads to a long, rich & fruity death with notes of rich vanilla panna cotta, menthol, cinnamon, ripe berries & dried cherry.
 
Abel
Abel,
Such a wonderful spirit. The flavor profile assessment is spot on. It leans toward more spice, for me— but certainly not a bad thing.

Not easy drinking. Tough on the throat and lingers unpleasantly in the tongue.

Complex.

Greg
Greg,
I didn't find this to be sweet at all. It's mostly spicey and not a terribly great flavor mix. Not bad, but definitely not in my wheelhouse.

Nothing special

cherry aftertaste, sweet on the tongue

Love this. Love the Spanish sherry cask flavor that is imparted in this scotch.
 
James
James,
Not a bad scotch but not peaty enough for my taste.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Quite delicious
 
Alex
Alex,
Deliciously smooth, and packed with flavor.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Loved it, really easy drinking. I suggest letting it air for a few hours before drinking as it took a way a bit of the sting. A single ice cube made this even better.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Fairly smooth with some nice spice. Tastes a little of pear and apple. Also has some honey and malt taste. I really enjoyed it.
