Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Pleasant but leaves you searching for more. I found myself sniffing away trying to find something interesting to say. Nothing much came to mind. A delicate whiff of mixed fruits, apples, pears and currants? Followed by a distinct lack of peaty smoke.
Palate: Honey is instantly noticeable (or is it caramel) along with the same fruity touch as noticed in the nose. Warming for sure but lacking any real punch and the smoke that I believe is sorely needed.
Finish: A great end in my eyes, the sweet fruit is replaced by an increased touch of honey. Finally I get some smoke both on my tongue and in my nasal cavity, not harsh in any way but definitely appreciated. My favourite experience of this particular scotch.
I am not entirely convinced with this one. Its definitely enjoyable and would make for a great everyday dram. Though as I tend to save scotch for 'occasions' its not one for me. One to be shared with friends for sure and for the price it is definitely worth keeping a bottle in stock!
