So I bought this bottle of whisky, and I opened it, savoured the delightful aroma and I poured my first glass.
I like my whisky neat; no water, no ice. So that's how this went in, and I got the full impact of the flavour.
This is a sublime example of a Speyside malt. It's a touch lighter than other malts I've experienced of this type, and is smooth and easy going.
It's really hard to give a comparative review, as I've had many Speyside whiskies over the years, most were priced much higher than this. And they've all been 5 stars, I don't recall ever having one I didn't appreciate and enjoy. This is no different, and is a fine example of Speyside single malts.
One word of warning... Don't leave the bottle lying around. I did and most of the whisky was stolen during the next few days. Despite being the only whisky drinker in my house, my bottle was emptied without me even noticing...
Bought thIs when it was on offer and it was an excellent buy. It was an anniversary gift for my uncle who really liked it. We all like malts and enjoy going to the distilleries when in Scotland and malt whisky has become a bit of a passion. We found this to be easy going with a hint of smokiness - nice easy drink, perfect to finish off a bbq when sitting around the fire. For the money I would definitely buy it again.
Typical speyside but with a touch of caramel. Not as complex as an Aberlour or Morangie but good value at £22. I normally take a dash of water with my Scotch but agree with others who said this tastes best neat.
I'm a Glenlivet drinker normally and first tasted this at a friend's house. I love the fruitiness and subtle finish. I wouldn't purchase this at the £32 tesco price so was nice to see the £10 cheaper price on amazon
