Member Ratings and Notes
Complex with two distinct parts, starts dry and oaky, then finishes with the deep sweetness of a much older whiskey. This is the next bottle I buy.

Nose has some peat, apples, lighter fruits, floral notes. Palate is tasty and initially sweet, with honey and vanilla, peat emerging. Finish is very long, with emerging heat that's manageable. Pepper. Starts tasting dryer to me after time. Though I don't love this as much as I did when it initially hit shelves, it's a solid and great whisky.



For me, a considerable amount smoother than the 10 year but not A quality.  However, as a bang-for-your-buck....this one is exactly what you should look for.  Fair price for an 18 year old with loads of flavor and solid goodness.  Pepper and vanillas incorporated with some sweet nuttiness.  Very good whisky.
Blind: Indistinct fruity sweetness with tea and vanilla.  Finishes nicely with just a touch of salt thats reminiscint of an ocean breeze.

n:  Salted fruit basket.  Metal


p:   Salty cream.  Raw wood. 


Decent but not phenomenal.
