  • Long, smoky with a heathers dryness and spice and delicious

Shame it's not as good as it used to be before they went all in with this Viking branding nonsense

A decent intro whisky to help you find your direction. The flowery heather is noticeable in a good way, although for a 12 this whisky as a whole is average. It can always be found somewhere for £25.

I have had it a year ago. Would you say it goes bad (worst) before or after that time? I really liked it, more than a Viking one. Is it safe to buy?

I can't tell if your comment is negative or not. I've not tried this, but generally classify anything with a 10 or 12 year age statement at this price as being good value, as they know rarely drop below £25 now.

There are a few OK no age statements whisky's at the £20 level (and some even about £18 such as the Aldi and Lidl malts which are worth a try) but most NAS versions of aged whisky's are awful (Bowmore no 1 Vs 12 year, Laphroaig Select vs 10 or quarter cask, glen livert founders reserve Vs 12 etc).

For 25 its very good value. I always have in my list of bottles, have the dragon legend at the moment but wouldn't hesitate to get this afterwards or the amazon version that comes down to £30.

I thought that too. Is that a widely held idea or just a few thinking the same?
