Bought this a few weeks ago after debating it for over a year. I'd always been curious and finally took the plunge.

Nose: Banana, Peat, Unripe Strawberries, Lemon Cake, Nutmeg, Honey

Palate: Bananas, light Peat, light Smoke, Wood Spice, Walnut, the Lemon Cake from the nose has turned into Lemon Meringue Pie.

Finish: Medium. Walnuts with the skins still on. A little Spice. Some Smoke. Slightest hint of Peat again.

I like this one. It was was better than I expected and there was a ton of sniffs and flavors going on. This is one that does everything good, not great, and that's ok.

This is the whisky that got me on my way as a connosr. lol Up until I tried this malt I had only experienced blends or perhaps a glenfiddich 12 or similar. It's a great starter whisky and one I continue to share with those who are just getting into single malts.

Thanks for the comments. I agree, this is definitely a good one to share with single malt newcomers.

At first I found this one somewhat non-descript, but I soon got to appreciate its understated complexity. Definitely one to start newbies on. Inoffensive, but very good in a quite subtle way. I think your 85 is right on the money teebone.

Thanks for the comment, BlueNote. This is a very underrated whisky in my opinion. Great for noobs, but the complexity is there for the more seasoned vets.

Agree totally with you here, a very good newcomer whisky, my second single malt, and was so good it made me keep going, reading this makes me want to revisit this underrated whisky. Cheers
