Any of you here tried this Scotch? If so, please share your opinions. I am interested in purchasing a bottle but would like some feedback first.

Thanks,

It's a solid pour. If I recall correctly I got a fair amount of citrus and fruit combined with a soft oakiness. Unfortunately, I've never sat down with a pour and formally reviewed it so I can't supply any tasting notes.

For what it's worth, I liked it. If possible, try to get a small sample from a local retailer. Mine general has this one open behind the bar. It's also a common pour at various Scotch tastings.

I can't remember any specifics about this drink. But what I do remember is that I really liked it (a lot). I paired it with a Padron Anniversary 1926 an that was a great experience. The 15 yr is also a very fine drink as well.

One of my favorite bottles but I am not expert in the review lingo so I'll leave it at that.
