Its a Highland and has the added responsibility of hearth and home. Also, less imaginative then Glen Rothes

sweet
medium to full
More like a Speyside experience than a Northern Highland
Smooth and sweet
A bonus dram for the evening. Interestingly paired well with the rich chocolate cake. Dare we pair a single malt directly with a dessert?

Atypical
Light – airy. Cheesy
Nasally – not exciting enough. Why isn’t there more than the heat?
Dufftown? Speyside influence here. “Southern end of Northern Highlands”.

Grassy

It tastes more like a Speyside than a Northern Highland. I would describe this as a middle of the road Classic scotch. “Rare Malt” they call it.

Nothing to get excited about but a nice even GlenM. A candidate for daily dram.
