Todd
Todd,
The aroma is nice, sweetness and some spice come through. The taste seems to have some honey to me, a bit of burn though as well. There is no age statement for this, so I have no idea how long it has aged, but maybe it's a bit too young. Water seems to bring out some wood flavor for me and tames the burn somewhat - might be the way to go.

Very nice start to finish. Very smooth. Will definitely purchase again.

David,
Excellent for a blend, just a touch of water opens it up real well.

Ron,
Most definitely butterscotch and green apples on the nose, smooth and sweet. Palate is filled full with citrus. Between me n wife we are middle - she’s says 6 and I’m a 7+ strong but not a full 8. 😋

Jasson,
Another fine bottle of high ABV (48%) that tastes far more complex than it should. Many of the higher ABV expressions are overpowered by the strength - but the good ones maneuver around that... Vanilla and spice stand out with the initial kick, with a very nice peppery finish. I will definitely be buying more of this at its price. 9 stars.

Very nice. Light. Young but enjoying.

Phil,
I rated this highly because of the price point. At about $50, you will have a hard time finding a better scotch. My local store unfortunately does not carry this, but if it did, it would definitely be my go-to scotch.

Jason
Jason,
Wonderful sweetness some honey and a hint of apple but not overwhelmingly so like Chivas, a little butterscotch on the nose and tongue. Only thing I could knock it for is the finish on the shorter side, but this is one I'll keep stocked in my bar!

I was never a scotch drinker before Flaviar. I bought the Geln Garioch 1797 strictly from the ratings only. I have to say I am very Impressed with the taste, finish, and overall flavor of it. I'm hooked now, well worth the money!!!!!

Great highland. Gets a little harsher with water. So drink with stones or neat. Great sweetness

Young but not offensive. No complexity. It is a safe dram.
