    It is quite good for the money. I get lots of pear with it and a bit of heather, but not as much as HP. Bourbon wood as well. Get it, you will not be disappointed!

    I did a review of the Scapa 12 here and I mentioned the 14 in it. Just haven't gotten around to reviewing it yet.

    Oh I love my Scapa 14!
    I find it to be one of the most gentle, smooth and soothing drams around. Its just so light and creamy.

    Tonight I'm contemplating a Carsebridge 1963 43yo Scottish single grain. 43% and soo smoooth it hurts. Nose of wood vanilla, and rum. Flavor- smooth sweet brown sugar vanilla with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Medium finish with lingering sugar and vanilla. Not extremely complex, but it sure goes down quicker than a hot tart. yum

    Interesting dram then. I find it hard to keep in the glass, as it keeps dissapearing. I think there's a hole in me glass. Wait... OK I found the problem.

    It's very smooth drinking. Lovely stuff.

    Glenfiddich 18-year. Definitely some Spanish Oak in there. The "spiced apple" tasting note provided on the bottle is surprisingly-accurate. More oak than the 12-year, for sure.

    Having said that, I found a little bit of edginess in this one that bears a resemblance to the 12-year. The bottle of the 15-year Solera Reserve, surprisingly, rounded it off somehow. My favorite is, thus far, the 15-year.

    But, for only $67 in PA, this 18-year Single Malt is certainly nothing to scoff at!

    At $44 in a PA State Store, this is certainly one of the more expensive 12-year Speysides on the shelf. But Cragganmore is certainly worth it. It is nearly as smooth and rounded as The Balvenie, and also possesses some of the complex, floral aromas of Glenmorangie.

    As The Balvenie and Glenmorangie are two of my favorite Highland/Speyside malts, I have to say I thoroughly-enjoyed this dram of Cragganmore 12-year.

    Now, if only DiaGeo will release a single malt bottling of Linkwood...
