Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 
A potpurri of spices in the nose.  Oranges.  Lean and crisp, with a splash of malt.  Nothing new in the finish. 
Adam
 
Nose of citrus with floral notes and tea tree oil.  In the mouth it's complex spices and clove sweetness.  Finishes malty with some smoke, pepper, and ash.
Mike
 
This used to be a very peachy malt.  Seems to have more apricot in the nose now. Then a little spiced peaches on the palate.  The nose is better.  The finish does not linger too long.  Not a bad 18 year old for the price.  Seems less flavorful than what it was 5 years ago.
D.J.
 
This was surprisingly tasty.  Nice finish.  Subtle nose.  And for the price, it's a must have for any home bar.
Andy
 
Simple.  Candied almonds.  A good but predictable one dimensional scotch.  Drinkable.
Dave
 
Always one of the basic, solid Scotch botles in any cabinet.  The price makes this a great buy and the taste is not....well....unpleasant.  Just solid and fine.  B-/B
Ries
 

n: dark honey and floral with wet tobacco leaves. Leather bound books and some charred oak.

 

t: smooth and savoury with heather and honey on the initial palatte that fades to spicy oak and damp green grass. Finishes of malt and a nice dose of smoked cloves. Not particulary deep, but it is a pleasing scotch.

 

Very accessible and easy to find. A solid bottle to have in the cabinet, especially for the price.  [B.]
