Smooth, sweet, richly fruity and rounded; just the right balance of complexity with plenty of rich, sweet flavor and a clean finish.
- Appearance - Old gold.
- Body - Light to medium body.
- Nose - Clean and complex, with a rich fruitiness that suggests an older malt. Some soft fragrant notes too; scented leather, subtle sandalwood and vanilla.
- Palate - Fruity, with citrus and raisins. Vanilla and a hint of honey, with just a subtle trace of wood; a maple-syrup sweetness.
- Finish - Short, creamy-smooth and slightly drying; a charming hint of blackcurrant lingers.
Smooth on the front sassy on the back. Somehow this Single Malt pulls off the full variety of flavor and heritage (taste) that we have all come to expect in a traditional Scotch Whisky. The 12 years that backs this whisky.. opens the door to the masculine but not overpowering profile, that I am sure Single Malt specialists will appreciate!20th Jun 2017
