Member Ratings and Notes
Maple nose, full oaky flavor with good mouth feel, some sugar. Finishes a bit hot, but quite good for the price. 
For the price, this is one of my favorite standby inexpensive whiskies. Sweet, sherried flavor, moderate finish, and very enjoyable. There's nothing remarkable here, but particularly for the novice scotch drinker, this is significantly better than the other options at this price point.  
Completely agree with DW. 
Completely agree with the notes above and this was one of my go-to bottles for a long time.  Always replaced an empty bottle .... until it got kinda .... tired.   
Honey and oats.  Bitter stalks. 
Good easy drinker.  The right amount of sweetness.  This is something I pour for friends who want to try a good affordable scotch that can be found at most stores. 

n: Heavy oak and a nice bit of barley/malt. Orange and vanilla wax and lavender field on a hot, humid day. Some red fruit notes from the sherry cask, but predominately vanilla and creamy.


t: Honeycomb malt. Oatmeal with black raisins and dried strawberries on top. A lot of bourbon barrel influence and warm honey notes. Marcona almonds. Lingers with a long oaky and fruity finish.


A great value whisky and one that I will always recommend. Something you can drink a lot of with anyone.  [B-/B]
