    This is one of those whiskies that proves the point that blended scotch is NOT the poor cousin of single malts, One of the freshest tasting and most complex and rewarding blends I've ever had. 

    Nose; Salt, sea air, mineral, very clean peat but not particularly smokey.

    Taste; Very coastal, but unlike many West Coast / Island whiskies, this reminds one more of sea water rather than the (seaweedy) shoreline. There is a hint of sweet oak. Quite oily on the palate but not cloying.

    Finish; fairly long and sweet with slight nutty aftertaste.

    This has a big Campbeltown character and with it being natural colour and, (I suspect) non chill filtered, is really good value for money. I've bought single malts at more than twice the price of this that aren't nearly as complex or characterful. Although I would think that a lot of the component whiskies are fairly young, some good quality casks have been used. I've given extra points because of the value for money and the obvious care that has gone into producing this lovely blend. Well done Mitchell's!

    Nice and pleasant. creamy mouthfeel, there is some peat, which indicates
    that some Longrow has been put into the mix. other than that you get
    some vanilla notes, and a little citrus. not too grainy. a good dram for
    easy drinking, when you don't want to be too anorak about it.
