— GREAT SCOTCH...A LITTLE BITE AT FIRST,AND THEN ALL WAS WELL

— I received this as a Christmas gift from my daughter and her boyfriend and really love it! I’d describe it as a sort of blend of Lismore 15 (my favorite) and a Laphroaig 10. A bit peaty at first (like the Laphroaig) but very smooth (like the Lismore). I’ll be keeping a supply of this in my bar.

— One of the absolut best bourbon matured whiskies I have tried. A very nice "dirty" vanilla, honey and maybe a bit of leather. A must for all good whiskylovers

Christopher,
Nose: Pineapple. Necatrines. Sour notes. Vanilla underneath. Honeysuckle. Really lovely. Palate: Malted barley. A nonpeaty smokiness. Quite interesting. Some heat. Almost chili-like in its character. Leathery tannins underneath, but not overwhelming. Honeydew melon on the back end. Finish: A lingering heat, along with that leathery smokiness. Nice. For the price, this is a lovely—and unusual—Speyside.

Kyle,
I was excited to try this speyside and was not disappointed. The aromas of oak and oiliness came forward first and the flavors on the first sip were oily fruity. A nice bite to it as well up front but, as the whisky sits on your tongue, it mellows out.

Daniel,
Beware, this is not your Father's Speysider! Strong malted barley on the nose with orchard fruits, hone, and hints of vanilla. Palate is a little hot with vanilla, honey, apples, citrus, and charred oak(?) The "meaty character" described on the bottle comes across as a slightly smoky tone. It's a non-smoke - a smoky tone without the smoke. Strange. Medium dry finish with a little more meat hanging on. Not bad. 7/10

Crisp, a touch of smoke and a wry clean finish. A good introduction to S Better Scotch for people who are new to the magic of it. A fine sipper.
