This is one of four minis I bought while I was in N.C. while visiting a friend who came back from serving our country in Afghanistan. Apparently N.C. has state run stores (didn't know that ). Anyways starting with No.1the others will follow shortly...

Nose: After I allowed it to breathe I came across a variety of sweet smelling fruit (peach mostly and apples), a bit of wood, barley, also a bit of citrus.

Body/Taste: Light-medium leaning towards medium body, vanilla, a bit of honey, oak, its a little crisp apparently this blend as 40 different components all centered around the Aberfeldy single malt.

Finish: Medium herbal ending and warming not the smoothest ending I kind of like J.W. Red better.

Upcoming review No.2 of 4 will be J.W. Black 12 year.

Very tame stuff, you might even say anemic. Just about as mild a blend as I've ever seen.

I agree I would have no trouble to go as far as saying it was boring

I will bet you that after you have tried 20 more blends that Dewars White Label will still win your prize for 'most boring'.

So I guess the good news is that now I know the blends will get better from here on in complexity anyway.

Yes, I believe so. If you look hard, you may find some really crappy blends with nasty flavours, but for boring, I think you may already have found the ne plus ultra.
