Took at chance with this last weekend as I'd let my stash run down, it was reduced to £25 so no harm done, at first I thought it was a strange one but it grew on me, plenty of apples and a drift of smoke that does it no harm, any views from others?

I haven't had anything from this distillery since they rebranded from Glen Deveron to The Deveron. The Glen Deveron 16 travel retail bottling was easy drinking, plenty of apple and pear from what I recall, it had no complaints from me as it was inexpensive

It does slot nicely into the easy drinking chart, got some citrus last night but apple is showing well,

I had a bottle a few months back and it grew on me too. Easy drinking with a fresh taste as well as an attractive frosted green bottle, I'll certainly buy it again sometime and at £25 you got a bargain. GL

Ive recently had a bottle of this on the go and @ £25 reduced it is very good. Big pear estery nose with a big meaty spirit with sherried notes. Lovely mouth feel (waxy and honey like) with a nice clean and light citrus peppery finish. Incidentally I also had a bottle of Lidl Ben Bracken Highland malt which is very similar - but less refined and lacking the viscosity.
