    EN: / Summary:
    In my opinion this bottling lacks expressiveness, would have expected more from a TCW bottling by Jim McEwan. This whisky would offer a good daily-dram (simple whisky, little complexity, it doesn't drop despite time consuming tasting, easy-to-drink) but given the price point it is out of the question.
