This is a good scotch for the price i paid, $25 here in Fl. It was mild and slightly sweet on the palate. Some woody noted near mid/finish. Long finish with a lingering smokiness that is quite pleasant. I did not get any spiciness with this especially when compared to a buffalo trace or knob creek spice next to it. The finish was quite soft in fact. A solid when i factoe in the value. I like it better than glen livet which is a few more dollars.

Light gold. Before I cut it with water it was very peppery and aggressive. A bit of water really helps bring out the flavors. Caramel, sweet, citrusy, pineapple. Lighter body. A bit aggressive on the palate. Peppery. Big caramel note. Medium finish. Overall it's a mixed bag for me... The flavor notes are very nice but overall the palate is pretty aggressive. I'm torn but I gotta go with the 4 star.
