Member Ratings and Notes
Sweet nose, some anise. Palate mild, sweet/plain, with bite. Finish scotchy, alcoholy, light smoke at end.  
Very light color, olive oil texture/feel in the mouth, mildly sweet with a somewhat sharp clean alcohol finish, does not linger.  
Sweet start, light smoke at end.  
Light color, oily!, very slightly sweet, lightly peated, pleasant burn on the finish.  Nose of turpentine.  
Down the middle, oily after buttery. Hits hard for a second. Not especially complex, but good. Classic Scotch. Not special, but good.  
Thin, oily.  
Balvenie-ish. Sharp and warm, like a knife. Clean finish. Oily. Light smoke at end. Nose is gasoline-ish. Thin, warm. Hot toddy-ish finish.  
Sharp initial bite; taste is floral and sweet, even a little buttery or oily; little to no peat; clean finish.  
I like. Buttery. Tobacco nose.  
At 16 years, the malt has overtaken the fruit on the nose, but there is still substantial fruit. The fruit on the palate is now more of a dried fruit variety with plenty of malt on all sides; there's also a slight sulphur note. It still has a fairly light character and is quite sweet. 

N: Sandpaper on metal.  Green grass and wet tree bark/ root

P: Menthol, green apple skin and alot of dry oak

F: Wax
