Muncher hit the nail on the head regarding the coffee bean flavor...only I LOVE coffee, so this is a "5" in my book. The coffee flavor blends nicely with thick, dark fruits and a robust toffee/chocolate flavor. Tastes like no other single malt I've ever had. Perfect pairing with dessert.

I'm with Irishman and Gerodim on this one, though a bit more enthusiastic. In short, this is Angles Envy done as an unpeated Scotch. There is no "challenge" here, nor is there meant to be any. This is very flavorful full bodied whiskey. It is very easy drinking over one cube of ice. Nothing "Sulfuric" about it.

I've never had a scotch so far that reminds me of coffee beans as much as this one does. It's interesting. Has the standard 10 year profile (fruit, citrus, cinnamon, and oak), but has coffee beans and toffee playing at a very noticeable volume too. I like it, just not as much as the 10 year and others in the "Expressions" collection.

This is a nice, smooth and interesting malt that is worth it's money. It's interesting nose and sweet taste make it ideal for people not very experienced in malt whiskeys.

This is an interesting one. What a great nose. Sweet sherried fruitiness with that Highland toffee and a hint of smoke. Mmmm. But then there is the Sulphur influence. A wee bit of water will help control the Sulphur and bring the fruity sweetness to the forefront.

My first scotch whisky. I got it because I heard it is what the average Scott drinks. I think it bites a bit, but a splash of water helps and keeps the bite from drowning out the flavors. Nice and spicy!

Not at all what I expected. Left a taste on my tongue for quite some time. Not one of my favorites.

The Glenmorangie 12 year is very nice. Has quite a bit more bite to it than the 10 year, but it's a good bite. :) Enjoy mine over a few ice cubes.
