I bought this bottle following the advice of a shop assistant in the Gordon & MacPhail grocery in Elgin, and I really never regretted it. The indicated price is the price in Scotland, so I imagine it is rather easy to find it cheaper abroad. It is a very good whisky, well balanced, from the Northern part of the Speyside area, just near Elgin. Very pleasant to drink, it is a bottle I recommend to each whisky lover.

A second tasting revealed a rather discrete nose, with some ripe fruits (peer) hints and a light malt touch.
The taste is relatively discrete too. No aggression. A taste of (too) ripe fruit, slightly malted.
A pleasant finish, accentuating the malt rather than the fruit. A very good bottle, but with a certain lack at complexity and surprise.

The nose is pleasantly fruity and reveals some spicy fragrances. Citrus fruit and hits of smoke. Orange skin.
In the palate, a nice mix of malty and fruity notes with some hints of sweet citrus fruit (ripe orange). A touch of nut on the background.
The finish is quite long, first smooth and marked by nutty bitterness, and develops rather quick on alcohol whiffs before getting smoother again after a while. Nice bottle, without being an exceptional one...

The pleasant nose is rather fruity with slightly acid hints which give it a kind of freshness behind its malty notes.
In the mouth, the malt dominates with some notes of citrus fruit mixed with honey drop.
A quite pleasant finish, with some honeyish but still discrete touches
