  1. I’m quite surprised at the 5 stars on this one. I didn’t think it was bad, but certainly didn’t think it was that good either.

  2. Initially found the smokiness very distinctive – a departure from other single malts I’ve tried. The finish grows on you, if you give it a chance. Three and half stars minimum. This one is for special times – I’d take it with me in a flask while grouse hunting without a second thought.
