Better to drink less of the real stuff

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.

Pleasant summer drink

A pleasant summer evening drink over ice when you don’t want full strength whisky, I don’t know what the critics want for a bottle under £12! I can recommend if you want something that is a little differ3nt.

On the whole a good entry level Whiskey to get to the good stuff.

As a Whiskey/scotch drinker if you judge this as a 10+ yo then your not going to like this.
If you want to enter and eventually get to the fine taste of a 10+ year old Scotch, then this is just up your street. Same as the days when a sweet white wine or light larger would do when young.
If your a Scotch drinker your better off adding water to your normal/favourite, 20-25% to your favourite tipple to get a lower proof. I will add to they added a lot of smoke to hide the body so if you don't like the isle then its not for you either, but on the whole a good entry level scotch.

Absolutely dreadful. Thought I'd get a nice mix of whisky with the added flavour of nutty sherry. Both of which I enjoy. Well off the mark with nasty chemical undertone. I've tasted better cough medicine.

Not great

Yep not great at all taste like it's the washed remains of the cask

Might be ok to mix but not on its own!

Not great - I had high hopes for this and it sounds like it should be amazing- there is a hint of smoke and a slight caramelness but it really tastes like it been watered down!! If any whisky says on it recommend as a mixer - you know it’s no good! I’m not sure I can give this away to any homeless. So I might decanter it into another bottle first before leaving it on a bench! Or leave it behind at a party! You never know due to being unpopular in a few years after they stop making it - a bottle might be rare and then worth something!

Will always put this in the drinks cabinet

Brilliant alternative. Full of flavour and body and I would definitely recommend it.

Good effort

This an excellent half strength "whisky". It made a really good stenga for summer nights and works well with mixers. They've upped the smokeyness to give it body and full strength is obviously better but a great effort.

Light on ABV but not on flavors

I love this! A tasty alternative for those nights i just fancy a dram. It's still very smooth and packed full of flavors. I definitely recommend this and will be picking up another bottle as soon as this runs out.

Not good!

I thought this might be a lighter alternative to a neat spirit and was very disappointed. Dull and flat with a hint of caramel but truly awful. I've mixed with ginger ale and a slice of orange which isn't too bad but I strongly advise against drinking this neat!!
