Why did God give drummers more brains than horses?
One review I feel I am way overdue for posting. This was my second whisky purchase after Glenlivet. After some careful online research and finding this at a reasonable price, I decided this was to be my next scotch purchase. Always a staple in my cabinet and a nice daily go to dram for a reasonable price. Very recommended, especially to newer scotch fans!

I really do like this whisky, but after having tasted some amazing stuff over the years, this is not the most complex whisky, but so very drinkable. I have yet to try later expressions but they are on my to try list for sure!
