Comment: I liked this dram for it's sweetness nicely composed with pepper and spiciness. It is a nice dram. But for me nothing special, nothing characteristic. Quickly fading, spicy finish. Will not repeat this dram as there is a lot of whiskies like this one on the market, and a lot of better and more characteristic one in better price.

Comment: Herbs
Very very decent High land whisky. Starting from densely lemon peal, dried pineapple and oak flavor ,following walnut and a bit alcohol and carbon board then finally long lasting remain with spicy and herb notes.
I think this is the one with value to drink if you didn't have a try.
