A must try Whisky. Beautiful drink
As classy and smooth as the people that inhabit the country it is named after. Genuinely a great whisky. One of my favourites.

Vanilla fudge meets chocolate orange. Superb
Lovely zesty tropical fruits on the nose, I got orange & pineapple, with creamy vanilla . Taste-creamy vanilla and chocolate orange, with hints of pineapple cube candy. I didn't get the nuts until the Finish-. Finish- creamy vanilla fudge, with salted peanuts and a little black pepper spice. As you can probably tell, I loved it.

Not sure it was down to low expectations but I really liked it.
Wasn't expecting too much but actually it is a very easy drinking dram.

Bought it on a whim in a shop in Sheringham but am very pleased with it. Assuming it's not too old but smooth nonetheless. Worth a try.

Just judged this for an awards blind with 30 other whiskys showed really well and a suprise when unveiled. Highly recommended at the price

Love it
As a scot we usually have between 25 to 30 malts in our collection all for drinking not keeping. A friend bought us the English and we love it . It does not matter where it is made or how good your company is at marketing.its about about people who care about their product no matter the country. Thanks for a lovely dram. Alan and Julie

Pass it
I bought this in Marks & Spencer in Hong Kong.. it was over HK$500... over £50.
I was hoping that it would be good although no high expectations as there was no age. It was a total disappointment... there was only the taste of raw alcohol... possibly the worst single malt that I have tasted along with cheaper Japanese whisky.. This would be passable in a supermarket if priced at around £8 in UK.. I would give it a miss.. Let it age in better old oak casks for many more years.

Highly recommended
Never heard of this whiskey before. I was gifted a bottle from my Dad and it’s a beautiful whiskey, very smooth and delicious. I would highly recommend to any whiskey drinker.
