  5. perfidiousscript scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    My favorite blended scotch whisky, and one of my go-to whiskies for the money.
    Pleasant throughout, starts out with clean fruit: mellow orange citrus and cider apples with cinnamon coming to the fore as the glass drains.

    Flavors are well blended and no individual part is too forward. Toward the middle of the glass the flavors may numb away to just 'scotch'.

    Eminently drinkable and rarely hot. Can take a few drops of water but any more will wash it out. At the price point there is no shame in mixing it, either.
