Pale gold in color; the nose is light and floral, with some subtle honey notes in the rear. The body is medium, and the palate, though simple in structure, is very well balanced, showing a hint of peat, a touch of honey and even a little leather thrown in for good measure. The finish is medium, and nicely spiced. This is a wonderful “on-the-rocks” bottling, a real deal at the price.

Flat, amber/gold color. The nose is more a middleweight than a heavyweight and is exceedingly pleasant, echoing more of a grassy, clean Lowland malt style that Speyside Highland or island. In the mouth, the taste is sweet and offers subdued, but complementary background flavors of chocolate, honey and sweet oak. The finish is clean, gently sweet, and surprisingly long.

The honey/amber hue is very eye-catching; impeccable purity. The first nosings pick up toasty, grainy, and dry cereal aromas; additional air contact brings out a near fruity scent that mixes nicely with the deep grain foundational scent. The palate entry is stunning rich, caramel sweet, and even nutty; the midpalate stage displays a fat/oily, toasted grain and sweet oak profile that is utterly delicious. Finishes as full and toasty as it begins. On the sweet end of the scale, a very good blended Scotch value.
