- just poured my evening two fingers of Scotch - a superb blend of single malt whiskies that in my humble opinion ranks well with many a famous single malt and also indeed with that well known (and somewhat expensive) blend of many colours that bars and pubs will charge you an 'arm and a leg' for, but be that as it may, let me just finish by saying that this is a great Scotch Whisky brought to my attention by the 6th Edition of Michael Jackson's Complete Guide to Single Malt Scotch - of 2010 - where it was rated at 88. We all know, or should know, that ratings are at best a slippery benchmark of sorts for various reasons, by various people. But that being said, we all know, or should know, that invariably the same whiskies will be in the range of 70 or above for almost all reviewers with some variation according to personal preference of taste and according to the year that the whisky was finally bottled - a guideline for all of us but never a golden standard.
Again, all that being said, this is also a good Scot's priced dram - it is affordable.
if you browse the internet, reviewers, bottlers, etc you will find some interesting stories on such things as how the name came into being, the well known single malts that comprise this lovely blend, and tons of information of that fabulous country of Scotland.
