Review: This blended whiskey has a floral, peppery scent. The high proportion of malt whiskey shows through in subtle flavours which develop with each sip. In fact the blend is such that it may win some who dislike the smokey/salty/peaty tones sometimes associated with whiskies (Scottish & Irish alike). In comparison with 'Jameson' I would suggest that '70' is the smoother of the two & deserves to win many converts. I would even seek novice whiskey drinkers to give it a try too.
