    Seriously underwhelmed by what is supposed to be such a renowned whisky. That said I'm no expert and I don't drink blended whisky normally (single malt all the way it seems) so take this review with a massive grain of salt - basically a himalayan salt rock lamp . In summary the whisky felt bland and lifeless with a just a hint of sweetness. Absolutely unremarkable. Bought some coke (the dull kind) that I plan on drowning it with so my friends can drink it. Feels like heresy but it's just not for me and I personally can't find even a hint of character worth preserving. Really strange, must just be that my pallet is not adjusted correctly for blended whisky. I hope I revisit this whisky in a few years and discover that I've become more sensitive to its flavour.

    It's a bit too straightforward for me but it's decent all the same. It does say 'smooth and easy' so I'm not surprised.

    Pleasingly sweet, followed by smokiness.

    Touch of peat with a nice sweet and spicy contrast.

    A little salty, a little sweetness (Honey dare I?) and a dash of peat. Not the most daring but definitely solid combination of flavours that allows it to slot into mainstream bars whilst remaining an interesting dram.

    It is good. No doubt. But also quite an assault of honey and vanilla. Like being attacked by a sweet shop. At this time I feel it is somewhat lacking in complexity. However this is undoubtedly owe in part to my nubile approach to bourbon.

    Unlike anything I've had so far (very new to the scene) so not familiar with the notes. Sweet with mild spice?
