Tasting Notes by teruo
In my humble opinion, this is one of the best offerings that one can purchase at the LCBO for it's price.
I picked up a bottle for a little tasting I held with a couple of friends and while it wasn't the winner, we all agreed that bang for your buck, it was the best in that regard.
Nose: Toffee and apple with a hint of vanilla.
Palate: Peated for sure, but not overpowering so those that may not like a peated scotch will still find this one enjoyable. It starts off creamy with a honey comb taste, then the fruits start to show. Peaches perhaps.
Finish: Fairly long giving a nice warming sensation.
Conclusion: For $45 at the LCBO, it's a great deal. From what I can gather it's part of their vintages section and not a normal stock item so I bought a couple extra bottles to keep me going until the next time they have this in stock. The last batch was released in April 2012 and is almost sold out across their stores.
