    Very drinkable. When you need it, it there for you and it's a joy. The day after, a little bit cloudy at most.
    Would give 100 if the label contained little grouse footprints.
    • Nose
      Haven't heard any complaints
    • Taste
      Light. Mild. Honey. A touch of triangle.
    • Finish
      A drop of nostalgia. Wakes the mouth and warms the heart.

  4. Kilo1 scored this whisky 56 points Expert Junior

    A good blend in its price segment, one feels that work has been done, one feels, albeit a weak, but the effect of malt alcohols.

  5. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I bought it to try and I like it altogether good
    but it is not a re-acquisition candidate
    • Nose
      very malty, sweet, slightly nut
    • Taste
      strong on the palate and prickles
      Oak, sweetie
    • Finish
      medium long
      slightly oak

    It's far from the worst thing I've drank, but it's also far from the best. It's young, matured in tired casks, a bit heavy on the E150, and light on the mouthfeel. But, it's not offensive or unpleasant. If you need a mixer or want a cheap easily forgettable dram, this will do the trick. Though, it does seem a good candidate for doing some whisky experiments.
    • Nose
      E150 and unsweetened apple juice, a touch of malt, oak, unsweetened yogurt, acetone and white fruits, and a bit of pepper. 
    • Taste
      Thin maltiness, E150 and some light fruitiness, dried leaves and cocoa, and a touch of bittersweet citrus.
    • Finish
      Oak tannins and a touch of vanilla flavor mixed with neutral spirit.

  7. holborndrinker scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Not the best whisky in the world but at a time when prices are starting to become silly, a pleasant enough drop.
    • Taste
      A pleasant session whisky - the taste if not bad and when you consider the price it is even better.
    • Finish
      A little non-desrcipt but I was happy to have another

    N- Farmy and turf. Chocolate, sour pepper. Soft.

    P- Soft dark fruits with hint of peat at the tail. Earthy.

    F- Short - medium, honey, subtle smokes. Soothing.
