- Best of the standard blends. Better than JW or Grouse.
- Not actually a bad whisky and ok for the price segment. Very smooth and pleasant with a light smoky note.
Not very complex, otherwise.
The bottle has a screw top that is designed to fake a cork.
fresh with a mint-coloured alcohol sting and an underlaying darker colour of smoke which is mostly cask char with a hint of peat.
smooth, velvety texture with woody tannines in the middle. The smoky notes from the nose are confirmed.
The darker notes prevail with a bitter-chocolate note.
Surprisingly long lasting finish that gives a slight metallic note in the very end.
