The nose is quite clean and crisp. There are some gristy cereal notes with rubbed petals and a pastry note. A milky note emerges with a little marmalade. The palate is quite smooth and of medium-body. Notes of oily nuts and barley with some bourbon notes. There are hints malt extract and caramel sweetness. The finish is of medium length with chewy oak.
Nice but bit bland
Smooth oily texture with great taste and heat - love this whiskey. Very similar to the Amber - non age defined but for 2/3rd cost - at the moment my favorite by a long margin!

the perfect birthday closer
I got a bottle from a friend who prefers a different brand. I fell in love with it. I've had three glasses since I got it but I think I'm going to save it for the close of my birthday every year. I had one this year and I absolutely loved it like it was a very special treat just for me.

when I first opened this a month ago I was somewhat unimpressed it tasted bland and metallic, but now its a different story, the nose is clean and packed full of creamy vanilla sweetness yet clean and crisp on the palate the vanilla comes through again like a rich crème brulee, barley sugar then the finish which I would describe as medium length just a smooth creamy vanilla note is left leaving a warm cosy feeling. not the most complex of offerings but great for a beginner although in my opinion and it is only an opinion, you could get a lot more bang for the buck. e.g. for the novice old pultney 12 or aberlour 10 or for the more experienced ardbeg/dalmore/balblair,lagavulin or coalila are all less money but streets ahead.

Quite smooth, some good tasting notes, think some overly critical.
For the price the are better and more complex ones, but a pleasant dram, and one I will replace when finished though maybe with a 12 or 15 which are both better in terms of depth of flavour.
Uncomplicated easy drinker for when your not in the mood for smokey or complicated.

I had a bottle of this 3 or 4 years when I was just beginning to explore malts and I just remember being totally underwhelmed by it, it was and still is one of the few times I’ve been disappointed with a whisky, be it cheap blends or expensive malts. I wouldn’t say that it tastes bad in any way, it just (as mentioned above) has no character and left no impression on me. I’ve been tempted to buy it again because I thought perhaps it was me that was the problem, either my inexperience at the time or perhaps I just had some particularly good malts prior to it but looking at the other reviews it seems I wasn’t far wrong.
