Smell / Nose / Aroma
Fresh fruits such as plums, black grapes and cherries with vanilla and hints of toffee.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Lots of vanilla, honey, chocolate and yummy things like that. The sherry influence is especially present making it really bitter-sweet.
A long and full finish with oak bringing the most in there.
Oooops. This bottle isn't on our current list of Home Bar Essentials... but it could be. Add it to your wish list and let us know you want it!

Very smooth, not aggressive in the least.
Surprising! Nice caramel nose, and bold chocolate and oranges on the palate. Very drinkable, even if not particularly subtle/complex.
The only one in the tasterbox I would order.
The caramel and the orange compliment each other well. This is worth a bottle.
Nice caramel finish.
Dark amber color. Caramel and oak on the nose. Salty palate with bitter dark chocolate and honey, and light bodied. I enjoy it better with an ice cube.
This was pretty good. Not my favorite. It had a bit of a lingering after taste that I didn't love.
Nice sweet fruity flavor with hints of vanilla and cherry.
Easy to drink, not outspoken. I had expected some more
Smells of caramel and cherry. Very sweet flavor with distinct flavor of cherry. Very tasty! This would be a good scotch whisky for parties or guests!
I like this one kinda suck they don't have a bottle to buy anyone one know of something similar to this one?
Mild dram. Mainly tasting the smoke and oak. Very short lived.
I found it extremely rough, hard to drink neat
Very smooth. One of the best I have had. All flavours are present and not masked by spice.
So smooth it's almost boring at first. But there's some complexity to be found if you stick with it. An easy drinker perfect for sharing with friends.
So smooth it would be s crime to mix it.
Good mix between the sweet and smoke
Nice and balanced. Will buy this one again.
Nose of vanilla with a beautiful light amber color. Caramel on the tongue with a light finish. Good for new scotch drinkers but it's a little boring for me.
Very light and enjoyable drink. Very good for someone looking for an introduction to single malts; it doesn't hit you in the face with smokiness but still brings you all you enjoy in a single malt. Might be too simple for the experienced drinker, but still worth a spot on the bar.
Very appealing scent of caramel, vanilla with a hint of fruit. Taste of smooth chocolate with almost no peat or smoke flavor. Very smooth. The best Scotch I've had.
Nice blend of bitter and sweet
Definitely on the lighter side. After diving in head first with Talisker and Deer Bear and moose Puncheon; this one is a little too simple.
The first thing that hits my nose with this is fruit followed quickly by vanilla and spice, maybe cinnamon and/or cloves? The nose on this is very complex and I can't quite put a finger on some of the notes I'm picking up. But it is wonderful! So much going on in there!
On the palate I get spicy dry fruit. There is a little sweetness, but not much. Just like with the nose there is more that I can't quite pin down. The finish is fairly long and dry, with a hint of smoke and pepper. Adding just a touch of water brings out some caramel notes in the nose and more of the sweetness, vanilla and chocolate tones, on the palate. This is one complex dram and definitely leaves me wanting to try more.
Very good, very drinkable.
Very tasty! It has a lot going on, and it's all good.
The flavour spiral has nailed this one spot on! Yummy!
My favourite of the pack. Light and easy to drink, full of flavour.
