A charming and excellent single malt offering untold complexity in the layers of flavours.
12 Years Old, Millennium Malt
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Fabulously complex with malt in varying degrees of sweetness and intensity. Apples and kumquats offer a mixed and fruitiness that lightens it.
Palate: Dry and oak start. Sweetens as the malt kicks in.
Finish: Long and malty with the heavier, silky tones clinging to the roof of the mouth. The oak returns to add extra dryness and weight.
Comment: A charming and excellent single malt offering untold complexity in the layers of flavours.
Nose: Lightly oaky. Hint of brown sugar.
Palate: Slightly syrupy. Honey. Butterscotch. Butter. Vanilla. Crème brûlée.
Finish: An almost spritzy, crunchy, toasty dryness.
Comment: The earlier, and less expensive, of two millennium bottlings. In this one, the emphasis is on first-fill bourbon barrels.
