      Nothing wrong with ice as long as you let it melt for half an hour

      Your perseverance with this tough task will be rewarded

              Heh Mech

              I could harp on about the honey cinnamon and malty tones but it generally means very little

              It’s a reasonably balanced easy drinking whisky that you could take large sips of whilst out at a bar or in social environment... it’s not hugely complex but has a little more fruitiness to it than usual top sellers tend to be a little oak laden.

              Pretty good value and a nice regular pour. Not one for examining the specific local characteristics and not resplendent of any particular region. If you were going to go up the chain from this you’d be looking at an Oban for the palate style

              Hope that helps

                Thanks Brucy. I've recently returned to Scotch Whisky, mainly the Islay expressions however after an Ardbeg An Oa and a Lagavulin 16 I found myself thinking I need to try some differing types. While I do enjoy the peated jobbies, I am still drawn to the sweeter styles. Tonight it's a beautiful Glenfarclas 15. The jewel in my cupboard though is the Springbank 10. A real stunner that I'm going to really savour.
                I'm always on the lookout for The Tyrconnell from Ireland.
                I've ditched the ice too....Thanks to Ralfy.com. I can watch Ralfy for hours haha

                      It’s a really interesting dram Brucy. At times it drinks like a 45-50% whisky than a 40%. That’s not to say it’s harsh, but it’s different to most other 40%ers I’ve tried. Of the other whiskies I’ve got here it’s probably most similar to the Oban, but I like it a lot more.
