The blend for grown-ups, for people who have made their rites of passage and are ready to enjoy their success. Sweet, but not cloying. Buxom, but not overblown. Balanced.
12 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Absolutely beguiling perfumed bouquet that features multi-layered and mature scents of apricot, pear, sweet cereal, and honey. Enchanting.
Palate: The palate entry speaks of Strathisla smoke. The mid-palate offers complex tastes of oaky vanilla, cocoa and butterscotch. Medium to full-bodied.
Finish: It glides down the throat in embers-warm, silky and mildly peaty tastes.
Comment: The blend for grown-ups, for people who have made their rites of passage and are ready to enjoy their success. Sweet, but not cloying. Buxom, but not overblown. Balanced.
Nose: Distinct marshmallow. Peach blossom. Faint cocoa.
Palate: Light. Hazelnuts. Cream. Buttercups. Violets. Lavender. Herbal.
Finish: A little snappy and aggressive.
Comment: The flavours tail off, as though the whisky is going to sleep. Smooth and easy, but lacks liveliness. Springtime never quite blossoms into summer.
