330ml bottle from Aldi. Clear and golden with a small white head. Light, sweet aroma, taste is light, malt. Really not picking up the whisky at all. Bit disappointing NotABeerFan (35) - GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - OCT 5, 2017
Pint, Wetherspoons Cumbernauld. Very strong ale, beautiful color and keeps its head unlike a lot of ales. Reminds me of Innis and Gunn Oak Aged, has the same whisky flavour. Toffee and vanilla notes and a nice bitterness with some sweet Ness too. Very nice, but a little to strong to be drinking in pints. Thomas_W1 (957) - Rastatt, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2017

Bottle. Hazy golden body with a thin off-white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of apricot, copper and watered-down whisky. Flavour of sour grain, bitter orange, cooking apple and a tangy, metallic finish. Not very nice, but not as bad as I’d feared it would be (this was given to me on Christmas 2014 - it only took me nine months to get round to drinking it!) Needs much more malt sweetness. I could only drink about a quarter of the bottle. thmsboyd (206) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle BBE: 14-02-16. Lightly-chilled. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a small, loose, off-white head. Good lacing. Very sweet, vanilla fudge nose, with pickled gherkin (really) in the background. Pleasant. To taste, a medium-high sweetness, moderate tartness and light bitterness. Light-medium bodied with a chalky texture, low-medium carbonation and a reasonable, woody finish. Overall a very raw-tasting ale with strong vanilla and woody dryness from the virgin oak. A more robust ale may have stood up better to the aging, but it’s interesting nonetheless.

Taste - toffee and malt again. Not much whisky taste to be honest.
Palate - medium bodied sweet and unbalanced.
Overall - not sure what they’re trying to achieve here. madmitch76 (25519) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2015

Lightlt hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy with a modest minerally crispness. Smooth malts. Nice light vanilla precedes mild tangy fruits and mellow whiskey. Finishes light and crisp, with a bare whisper of smoke. Tasty and easy drinking.
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours golden amber, pear on nose, fruit cocktail taste with vanilla.
