  • Excerpt: Honest modern malt whisky, rather for beginners IMHO. A little narrow.

  • Excerpt: The palate follows suit, though a moderate citrus pop adds some drama here. It isn’t enough to wash away the youth, though, showcasing notes of unripe banana and toasted bread, punctuated with notes of green herbs. I get a slight scallion note on the finish, which isn’t my favorite way to finish a dram.

  • Excerpt: It's simple, sweet and better served as a warm up or thoughtless dram rather than a dram to sit down and really think about. The bottle says to expect "spicy ginger, orange peel and sherry" but the first two are entirely absent.

  • Excerpt: Medium-bodied with a light savory note in the middle that then drifts toward Brazil nut, and Assam tea.

  • Intro:

    I got this at fluke pricing a while back ($32) and thought...hm, why not. I'd like to preface this review saying that temptation shouldn't always be entertained.

  • Nose:

    Pear, apple, vanilla

  • Taste:

    Thin, sweet, young, heat, sherry, astringency, pears

  • Finish:

    Short, sweet pear and apple, mild sulfur

  • Overall:

    For $32 (the fluke price I got it at) it's fine but it's young, thin and a tad hot. I see it over $40 around here which is a waste. It's simple, sweet and better served as a warm up or thoughtless dram rather than a dram to sit down and really think about. The bottle says to expect "spicy ginger, orange peel and sherry" but the first two are entirely absent.
