  • Publication: The Whiskey Jug
  • Excerpt: It’s like the diet version of a really good Speyside and leaves me wanting more, but never quite able to find the substance I want in this glass. This is definitely a whisky that needs a higher proof and maybe even another year or two in the barrel.

  • Excerpt: This is as soft and sweet a malt as you could ask for: peaches, toffee, and baked apple, with a tobacco/cedar/pine note from the oak.

  • Publication: Distiller
  • Excerpt: It's a solid baseline Speyside, not overly complex, and with an ABV that is well-suited for enjoying the whisky neat. Perfectly suited for casual sipping.

  • Excerpt: The finish integrates the cinnamon with some chocolate notes, a touch of dried plum, and a hint of gingerbread. A really fine experience and, again, a pretty good bargain.

  • Excerpt: It's a sweet one-hitter. It's inexpensive, nearly abundant everywhere and other than the short finish, brief stab of astringency in the palate and the general familiarity of introductory drams, it's fine.

  • Intro:

    A no frill Speyside for not a lot of dollars.

  • Nose:

    Pears, apples, vanilla. Faint honey, lemon and walnuts.

  • Taste:

    Sweet apples, pears and lemons. Very reminiscent of a young, thin Fiddich. Sweet, light, unoffensive.

  • Finish:

    Short, no burn, just sweet.

  • Overall:

    It's a sweet one-hitter. It's inexpensive, nearly abundant everywhere and other than the short finish, brief stab of astringency in the palate and the general familiarity of introductory drams, it's fine. I'm giving it a 4. I'd rather have something like Balvenie 10 or 12DW but the increase in complexity, although definitely noticeable, isn't massive. A little more complexity would have easily made this a Rank 5. This is fine, but completely boring.
