Richer and more expressive than any version I have tasted previously. Extraordinary sweetness.
12 Years Old, Distillery Malt
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Herbal. Fruity.
Palate: Intensely sweet. Creamy-tasting. Ice-cream (or perhaps the Indian equivalent, kulfi).
Finish: Lively. Zesty lemon peel. Candied angelica. Cilantro.
Comment: Richer and more expressive than any version I have tasted previously. Extraordinary sweetness.
Nose: Like an Italian delicatessen: dry and slightly dusty with hints of spice, coffee, bran, vanilla pod and nut.
Palate: Sweeter than the nose suggests. Estery and floral with sweet grass.
Finish: Short and a little dry.
Comment: Simple, pleasant but a little one-dimensional.
