Very Good

Great for the price, reasonably smooth for a 43%-er, which is to say a little rougher than your standard strength Speyside, but only a little. A hint of smoke and peat precedes a spicyness finished with fruity notes. It's not quite up there with the Balvenie's etc. but I'm about to buy a second bottle now to see if I really like it!

leinburn 12 is untouchable despite its low price for a great dram! I keep coming back to it after Glen Garioch 1797, cardhu 12, buchanain's 18 and glendronach 12.

No Ice or Cola Needed

Malt whisky is at its best without ice and mixers.( AGHHHHHH)

Just add a teaspoon of cold still pure water, leave for a few moements slight swirl and sit back sip and enjoy. If you want mixers go and find a cheap blended.This is a very good malt whiskey, dont spoil it.

Not my style

Nice finish but a bit too spicy (or do I mean sharp?) for my taste. I'd have to dilute this or, crime of crimes, add a drop of cola.
(Note: I drink Balvenie Portwood, which is very smooth, so it's a matter of taste of course)
If you like spice, it's worth a go.

Very nice

A very nice Speyside dram. Light, fruity, with a long lingering smooth finish, and fantastic 'on the rocks'. It's actually 43% and not 40% as listed above.
