    Got this one as a gift for Christmas, together with the Glendfiddich 14 yo Rich Oak. I decided to sample this one first. I had read some notes before, and I'm happy to be able to recognise a lot of the flavours: apple/pear, citrus, some vanilla and some oakiness. The aftertaste lingers the right amount of time. A favourite!

    As I wasn't really into whisky, a friend recommended me to try the JD Honey, which I instantly liked. Then he wanted me to try and taste the Gentlemen's Jack, but unfortunately he ran out of it. So, the second pour was this JD Old no. 7. A bit stronger on the taste, perhaps even a bit oaky, but still sweet. Purpose fulfilled though: they (the friend + JD) got me interested in whisky!

    My first one... As I didn't really have a thing for whisky, a good friend recommended me to try the Jack Honey. The first sip won me over right away! So sweet, and inviting... it became an instant favourite. After exploring some other whiskys, it's starts getting a little bit too sweet, though. Still great and still enjoy it occasionally, but mostly as desert or as aperitif.

    Fruity nose, strong, warm taste and a slightly spicy finish, with a hint of honey. Not very complex, but an ok blend for it's price.

    As I wasn't very much impressed with their Red Label, a friend recommended that I try the Black Label. Although tasting more mature, and more complex, I'm not yet 100% convinced. It feels like a safe bet, but it's nothing special. I do like it a lot better than the Red Label though.

    Had the opportunity to taste this 12 year old Highland Park on a party a while ago, and despite of having to sip it out of a disrespectful plastic cup, i quite enjoyed it. What I remember is a rather sweet nose, that I also found on the palate, but accompanied with a fair amount of smoke and spices. The finish was similar, and lasted just the right amount of time. Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance on a second dram, as the bottle was empty. One for my wishlist!

    First time I tried this one, I tasted quite a bit of smoke, and some herbs/spices. Later on, the smokiness made some room for more flavour. I don't seem to find the fruits some people taste, though. For me, Red Label would be ok if there's nothing else, but wouldn't buy myself really.

    'Found' this one in my wife's cooking cabinet. Nose and palate are quite sweet, honey-like with a sense of vanilla. Medium to long finish, with some brown sugar. Not bad, but nothing special either. OK voor cooking, I guess :)

    Purchased a 'limited edition' giftset, including a miniature bottle of Uisge Source water taken from the distillery's water source, the Pitilie Burn. Nevertheless, In my opinion, this nice 12 year old doesn't really need any added water though. Nice nose and palate with hints of honey and some fruits. After reading other notes, I also can find some idea of apple and caramel. Moderate, but pleasant aftertaste. (Numbered Batch: 2905)
