Contains 100 single malts.

This borders on "collectors only," as it's long out of production, and the few retailers who still have it (mostly overseas) are selling it for at least twice the original price, and folks are asking up to $200 on eBay.  [Early 2009]
Member Ratings and Notes

Nose is sweet, with caramel, and notably the "digestive biscuits" that come in the Carr's Assortment package of crackers (you know, those really thick, grainy-looking ones).  Citrus hints.  Palate is sweet, with those biscuits again, and graham crackers, and some wisps of orange or lemon.  Finish is long-ish, with plain spice.  This is decent stuff, a sort of down-the-middle pitch.  It's good, and I'd enjoy this on a random I-don't-get-to-pick day.  And I'd be happy enough with it on an airplane.  Oh, this is a mishmash of 100 different single malts?  That makes perfect sense.

N: It smells golden, in a nectary honey kind of way.
P: Big and oily and...and...nothing really stands out.  Nice mouth feel but has no distinct flavors, just sweet and malty.
F: Sweet and perfectly OK.
After the identity of this was revealed, it makes sense.  If you mix 100 malts together, don't expect any big flavor notes.
