Nose: Pine oils, fresh. Sweetness, nutty, smoky. Stem ginger, bog myrtle, acacia honey.
Palate: Floral, grassy. Heather and hedgerow berries. Buttery, spicy.
Finish: Quite sweet, tannic. Citrus notes, a tad more stem ginger, zesty.
Lack of colour is a good thing it means none little colour is added.

This is the one to try for value for money. Not many know more about Scotch whiskey than Gordon & Macphail a traditional company with ethics and standards. Johnny Norfolk.
This bottle goes for like 29 bucks in Buffalo, NY and I swear it stands up to 70-80 dollar bottles. I agree with the Smoked ham on the nose and it is a bit firey but man the flavor sits on your tongue about 5 times as long as others in the price range. Love it. Not a showstopper, but trounces its peers.

Purchased primarily because it was on special offer but now glad we did. One of the palest whiskies around but what it lacks in colour it certainly makes up for in both aroma and flavour. Have to disagree with the chaps on this one because this is distinctly smoked ham and sweet apple sauce on the nose and palate with an extremely salty, satisfying finish that lingers long on the tongue. Well worth a try - at the right price.

Great Balance Of Sherry and Peat, sometimes you look at a bottle that seem just too cheap, make you wonder if the quality will be there. But this one was way better than expected!
