    a better than average $50-60 whiskey. not overly sweet but enough to keep the palate happy with a medium finish

    was given this blind by gracious host of a dinner party who asked me what i thought of it. it was earthy, but not overly peated. sweet to the right levels . a wonderful balance of flavors that would make it enjoyable solo or with food. i guessed a special release highland park maybe. when he pulled out the bottle i was surprised & when i looked up the bottle i was even more surprised. one of the most elegant finely-tuned peated scotches i will probably ever have the chance of trying.

    the proof unfortunately makes it difficult for the sweetness of the canadian blend to shine, but that's easily taken care by a big ice cube. once the ice is applied, the true flavors shine making this very enjoyable.

    the review is pretty true to form. takes a lot to get the sweetness out of this one, whether adding an ice cube or water. the longer it sits on the tongue, the sweeter the profile turns. other than that, it's spicy & dark.

    being familiar with the willett ryes, the taste is somewhat similar, which is a good thing. without the licorice/rye notes in the flavor, the initial strong palate sweetness covers the mouth. the 120+ proof doesn't get in the way of the great finish.

    slightly reminiscent of westland winter but easier to drink. has the dark sweetness & a bit of a smokey kick, more than what the reviewer claims. it fades to a nice if not somewhat short finish. REVISED REVIEW: after spending time with it, it's better than my initial review. with the addition of the absolutely yummy stout beer on the finish, it's a unique set of flavors that have impressed everyone i've shared it with.
