The nose is malty in a sort of Clynelish style. It's got some coastal notes but also some floral. The palate opens with sweet peat. The peat is present but not overwhelming, and the sweetness gives it a sort of candy coating. The mouthfeel is light. The finish is peaty and, for the first time, shows some grain whiskey notes. A minute later the sweetness is back adding a chocolate note to the grain, like Ovaltine.

 

This is a very solid blend with some good peat action, and at $25, it's a no-brainer. The price to quality ratio is insanely good.

n:  Neutral.  Just nothing much there.

 

p:  white pepper and toffee.  Not even remotely hot.  A simple easy sipper that could easy pass for a base model single malt or a $100 blend.

Faint as can be in color. The nost is pleasent and balanced. Fairly light, with some vanilla style grain notes The palate is interesting enough with some spiced oak and more vanilla. I am with Sku, the price to quality ratio is absurd on this one. Will likely be my stock blended scotch cocktail option from now on. B/B+ [3/4/15]
