The art of blend.
 
Sometimes a blend comes along that has it all. The complexity of flavor, just the right ratio of all ingredients, body like no other and the combination of subtle smoke and peat with the sweet parts of the Blend. Guys at Ian Macleod have done just that with this Blend. They’ve elegantly put together just the right flavors that represent Island and Speyside Whisky.
 
Ian Macleod is a big name in the Whisky industry game and this blend brings us their best of blending. Put together the mellowness of Speyside and a twist of Talisker give it some extra rest together in oak barrels and you get this creation. Smoky almost salty with sweet on top this is really is a Blend that has much to offer.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color 
Pale straw.
 
Nose / Aroma / Smell 
Grains come out first. Later lots of vanilla, oakiness and honey. Evocative and extraodinary!
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Light smoke is the song you hear in the background. There is spiciness, caramel, some citrus and even char hum along the main tune.
 
Finish 
Sweet and salty with some oily feeling to it.

Ben
Ben,
Smooth, you can taste the caramel and vanilla in it.
 
Tony
Tony,
Not as complex as the single malts that I have been tasting (not a knock on blendeds -- it is only the first one I’ve tried), but enjoyable, especially the long end in a fine honey, sherry smoke
 
Larry
Larry,
Very peaty out of the bottle. Once allowed to breathe it opens up a bit to some honey tasting and spicy notes
 
Christine
Christine,
Sweet aroma, spicy and nutty flavor, mild smokey finish.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Heavy sweet malt with a soft smoke to it.
 
Gordon
Gordon,
Nice Smokey aroma to start which comes out strong to begin the taste and lingers until the end. Hint of nut and vanilla and sweetness to finish.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
It was a good whisky. No real smokey character as I would expect from a scotch. Good flavor and leaned towards the sweet side.
 
Sabrina
Sabrina,
It was okay.
 
Mat
Mat,
A fantastic, balanced, full-flavor whiskey. Slight sweetness rounds out rather than overpowers smokiness.
 
Michael
Michael,
Good but not great - there are better drams.
 
Greg
Greg,
Initially quite nutty with a hint of smoke. As I progressed the vanilla came out. Very enjoyable.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Sweet, not as smoky as I expected. Smooth finish.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Great value buy. Light smoke, strong malt and spice.
 
Yang
Yang,
Lots of citrus, easy to drink. Smokey finish. A tad too sweet for a scotch.

Taste like cloraseptic throat spray

Love it
 
Kortland
Kortland,
I was a bit surprised by the amount of spiciness that this scotch kicked out at the initial taste. The smoke slowly arrived after the hints of vanilla and citrus subsided. It leaves a nicely aged oak barrel hint on the pallet after it's all said and done.

Ryan,
Sweet and soft
 
David
David,
This blend reminded me of Johnie Walker Black. I like it but I also like paying less for Johnie.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Not what I was expecting, probably a one-and-done, agree with other reviews that could be priced as a 10 year, got the smoke but that's about it
 
Gary
Gary,
Like a highland. Supposed to be smokey (tasting spiral), but that's not what I tasted. A bit too sweet for me, but I would drink it, if offered.

Very mellow. Nice.

guest,
For the price point, this blend is incredible. It's very smooth, but shows very balanced smoky notes. It really does taste like a single malt more than a blend, which is impressive.
 
Enoch
Enoch,
Smooth enough, but weakly flavored, this 12-year should be priced as an 8- or 10-year. Not fruity enough to be called fruity or spicy enough to be called spicy, each sip leaves the sipper unfulfilled.
