Approachable - even amiable - but with some substance. Wintery flavours that are warming without being challenging.
12 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: A hint of fruit (apricot?), then creamy, with some peaty dryness. Appetising. Fresh.
Palate: Lightly fudgy and nutty.
Finish: A late balancing dryness and a surprising surge of spiciness. Reminiscent of cinnamon, then gingery.
Comment: Approachable - even amiable - but with some substance. Wintery flavours that are warming without being challenging.
Nose: Fruity and lightly honeyed. A mix of butterscotch, fruit scone, heather, hazelnut with a wisp of smoke. Slight greenish note.
Palate: Light to medium bodied that starts with spices and orange peel then some honeyed fruit and a little smoke.
Finish: Dry and biscuity.
Comment: Well-made, attractive. Lacks complexity but a decent dram.
