Good Entry level mixer
It's never going to compete with a fine single malt, but then it really isn't supposed to. It works great as a mixer and does a good job of introducing people to whisky drinks, especially if their palate isn't accustomed to strong bitter tastes.

The substantially lower alcohol content is also nice for those who desire a larger drink without the consequences. Overall, if you want to sample rich flavours in a neat drink, this isn't for you, but if you want a smooth spirit to add to a soft drink it'll do just right.

Excellent for its niche
It's never going to be a fair comparison to rate a 20% abv whisky alongside a standard one; alcohol is too important to the overall taste and texture.

Until food science advances enough to make a convincing NA whisky, this has a very useful place at the bar for lower-alcohol cocktails. I have enjoyed this in low-abv Boulevardier variations, and in Manhattans/Rob Roys where I wanted an unusual vermouth to be the star. Also useful for when you want the ritual but not the full intoxicating power of a cocktail, like for a greeting-drink with your guests when you haven't really got dinner in hand yet, or to touch up after-dinner coffee when you've already had plenty to drink.

I don't know of many (any?) other products on the market with an in-between-wine-and-spirits abv, that do the same flavour work that this does. That's worthwhile and I'm glad this is available, but it's a distinct product from actual whisky so expectations should be set accordingly.

Really bad
Terrible tastes like petrol if you are going to blend whiskey with cherry you should use more aged whisky

A bit disappointing as I only really got the smokey taste
The overbearing taste is too smokey. This spoils the experience, I was hoping to find tasty midweek tipple that replicated a taste similar to Mainstream Whyte & Mackay blended.

This Whisky is a whisky without its punch as in there is no fire ! Very smooth with a woody after taste. I found it to be quite a nice change. It only looses points on its strength but for its price come on this is a little cracker. Lovely price and a lovely drink.
