  1. I popped my proverbial cherry on this scotch. Was given to me on my 32nd Birthday. I never saw myself as a scotch drinker and it was love at first drop. Within a month, I had been through my bottle and two more. I’m not a big drinker but this scotch right here will turn you into one. Not for sake of drinking booze bu because the taste, the aroma, it is magical for a first timer. If you are new to scotch, this is the finest place to start there is. Not too complicated, and not too expensive. I find this locally for about $36 a bottle and well worth it. Glen 12 year is a staple in my house now. 4.5 stars our of 5

    1. That’s funny. I absolutely agree. I have told quite a few people that this was my “gateway” scotch. It has a decent zip that its sister Glen is lacking. Glenfiddich still could come down in price a little bit.

  2. This was actually the second single malt I ever drank, and it almost turned me away from it. Glad I tried others. AVOID.

  3. This Scotch is outstanding, but it is not an after dinner Scotch. It requires a clean palate to properly enjoy. Get yourself some icewater and get your mouth very clean. Then you will experiance a slightly spicy flowery scotch with a background of pear alluring you to take another sip. It ranks just outsides my top 20 Scotches of all time.
