Decent balance. A light session dram.
Aged 12 Years
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Supple. Vanilla and lemon with sweet barley sugar/honeycomb. A touch of green plum and in time a nutty, wheaty, cereal. Lawnmower box.
Palate: Light syrupy feel with toasty coconut, some citrus, butterscotch and chocolate-coated Brazil.
Finish: Quite short fresh.
Comment: Decent balance. A light session dram.
Palate: Starts clean and refreshing. Slowly develops marshmallow maltiness, becoming nutty and sweet, with a touch of roasted nuts.
Finish: Sugared almonds.
Comment: Enjoyable. More-ish. Perfect for lacunae in a busy schedule. Those leather sofa moments in hotel lobbies. Sip it while munching cocktail snacks.
