I only drank that in pubs. But often enough that I think I can review it.

First off, it's good. Pretty good indeed. Very drinkable. Too much even, maybe.

Like it's neighbor glenfiddich, it's soft and smooth, not really needing any water.

The nose is very nice, gentle but complex. we can get some nice smooth vanilla, lightly grilled malt and wood. And that sweet honeyed touch.

The body is nice and delivers dry fruits and a sweet follow-up on that grilled malt and honey. And the vanilla is there.

The finish is quick, but i think that's why you can so easily drink too much of it: you just wnat more out of it.
