I was advised that this is a good everday malt (a gentleman's term for when after tasting four of your best ones and your taste buds and judgement are gone, you need to switch to something cheaper to avoid wasting the good ones).

Well this one tastes like apples and spice and is certainly more interesting than the 12 year olds from Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, but I would still prefer to use Aberlour 12 and/or Auchentoshon 12 to serve the purpose of not wasting the good stuff when one's judgmement is gone. By themselves, these two just mentioned are still good stand alone malts that can hold their own.

Initial impressions can be wrong. I was not impressed with this one upon opening of a new bottle. However, just a little bit of oxidation brings out the true flavors of caramel, apples, and butterscotch. This ia actually a very good budget malt! I truly thank the bartender for recommending this one! If I ever wind up broke, this will be my main one.
