    PERFECT AMBER & WHISKY COLOUR
    Nose
    HEAVEN--ALMOST. NOT HEAVY BUT IT WANTS TO PLEASE.
    Body
    MELLOW AT FIRST BUT IS CATCHES UP TO YA. FOUND IT FOR $26 WHICH IS MUCH CHEAPER COMPARED TO EXPENSIVE & BIGGER KNOWN WHISKY'S BUT VERY MUCH WORTH IT FROM BODY.
    Palate
    MY 1ST SAMPLE WAS NEAT AND HAD A BIGGER KICK FROM WHAT I EXPECTED. MIXED WITH HALF RAINWATER I FOUND THIS SPEYSIDE PERFECT FOR ME.
    Finish
    I LIKED IT. THIS WHISKEY'S FINISH WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN.

    Review by TradeWhisks

    8550/99
    Color
    Light Amber
    Nose
    Toffee, Butterscotch, Honey, Vanilla, Citrus, varied Floral Notes, and a fragrant touch of Oak interspersed with what appears to be the undulating drift of Cranberries and Rum Raisins.
    Body
    Very Full Bodied, Thick, Oily, yet Soft and Mercurial, very gently rolling off, rather than seeping into, the contours of the tongue.
    Palate
    Sweet Barley, Cereal notes, interesting amalgam of ripe Pear and red Apple, balanced against a Toffee - Chocolate union underscored by a peppery, Bourbon Oak.
    Finish
    Medium - Long. An unobtrusive descent leaves one craving for a Warmth that, until the very point of its arrival, leaves one fearing disappointment. Yet, like the calm before the storm, a gentle yet assertive spiciness emerges to quench the demand for satisfaction. Very nice.

    This single Malt is young, fresh, surprisingly complex, and a pleasure to consume. There are no explosive flavors here as can be typically found in the older single Malts, but the relatively strong nose grows well with a subtle, if immature, palate. Of course, for $24.99 this is a clear winner.

    Review by Thepourfool

    Color
    Mdium Straw
    Nose
    Leads with a touch of sea salt riding atop smoked peat. Earthy loam aroma follows and traces of nuts and caramel.
    Body
    Medium-bodied, light on the palate, with a faint oiliness that is very flattering. It doesn't coat the tongue as much as brush it.
    Palate
    Caramel, almonds, mushrooms, and leather predominating. Faint hint of petroleum (not off-putting) and a mineral tang.
    Finish
    Timed out as 25 seconds; respectable.

    There are a lot worse ways to spend your limited bux in the Scotch world. If you keep your expectations reasonable, you'll probably enjoy this a lot.
