Member Ratings and Notes
A vatting of some pretty diverse malts.  Smokey and easy peat with some nice sweet vanilla notes aded to the fresh fruits and nuts.  Well done for a blender and a plesent surprize.  I would recommend this to someone who wants to transition from blends to Malts a they probably won't be scared off by the name that they alredy know.
Very balanced and smooth, perfectly vatted to taste like nothing. (Designed to suit the "American" palate no doubt.  Damn prohibition!  Damn it to hell!).
Did not like this, Sam I Am. Did not like Green vatted bland. 
Lot of orange, ice tea and burnt citrus.
I hate oranges and yet strangely I did not hate this.
I suspect the inclusion of alcohol might have been what turned me around.  My notes at the time: "Drinkability." 

N: oily and buttery.  wood shavings

P: white pepper, malt, hints of smoke and peat

F: citrus (lime) and nutty lingering finish


My go to at the bar. 


n:  Green apple peel


p:  Smoooooooth with a tad of white pepper on the finish.
