Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Rather gentle notes of toasted cedar, orange zest and roasted hazelnuts rise from the glass. Delightfully light bodied with a prickle of honey followed by marmalade and campfire smoke. A long, smooth finish follows and allows for hazelnut and a slight smokiness to shine through. A delicate nose of toffee, vanilla, smoke, cedar and orange blossom aromas fill the glass. A faint trace of toasted oat is also detectable. Light and honeyed in the mouth, it displays generous flavors of vanilla, orange zest, baked cherries while offering more subtle smokiness. The finish is mellow and lingers on the palate. (Apr 2014)

The world's most popular whisky, much smoother and somewhat lighter than many of its contemporaries, it retains the authentic flavor of traditional Scotch Whisky.
