My birthday whisky! This is delicious despite its age, and I think one can really tell it's quite young. There's a brightness to the flavours, which I don't really find in older whiskies. Despite its youth, it's surprisingly complex, with notes of pears and honey predominating, like a good Glenfiddich, but with other interesting flavours as well - eucalyptus and mint especially. Very good, and very good value.


I like this a lot.
