A good dram for introduction to scotch, but not too interesting. More complex and enjoyable than the 12 yo however there are many other, better options for your money. The nose is fruity, sweet, and (not surprisingly) oaky. Palate continues similarly with strong wood flavor and sweetness. A little bitterness comes through. Finish is medium length. I've garnered the most enjoyment from this whisky as an after dinner dram.

@cask_strength - where did you find it for $36?! I bought at $54

I liked this one though I'll agree, there's not much complexity here but if you're looking for a nice, sweet after dinner drop, you could do worse. Dependent on mood, this dram could be the nicest thing this side of the mississip or the most blah thing under the sun. But for the most part, it's just a good night time, hanging out dram.

@cask_strength - I agree, $36! Where? At that price its a whole different game... a steal. I would certainly buy in under that circumstance.

I live in the Milwaukee, WI area - stumbled upon it at a discount liquor store. Couldn't pass it up for the price.

I received a bottle of this at my Bachelor party. We finished a bottle of the 25 year and also a bit of the 15 French Oak. An excellent whisky for the price.
