Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Pleasantly mouth-coating without being overly so, this is well-balanced with an array of scotchy flavors -- fruity, sherry tones, spice, malt -- it's a broad but not extravagant palate.  Long finish.  A solid and very drinkable whisky.
Chris
 
N: Varnish, cake, and butter
P: Almonds, nuts, fruity notes, sweet and enjoyable.
F: Rises on the sides of the tongue, tingly.
A darn tasty blend I must say.
Andy
 
n: Almonds and shoe polish.  Unoffensive.
p: cereal and lacquer.  Mouthfeel is too thin.  Finish is gone before it begins.

Not a bad blend, but a blend by any definition.  No surprises here.
Ries
 

n: non-descript but balanced nose. Sweet malt and golden honey sweetness, waxy citrus, and floral. Covers all the bases.

 

t: follows nose, smooth, and multi-dimensional. Middle has a bit of smoke and finishes light oak and honeycomb. Grain sweetness shows more at the end.  [B/B-.]
