Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Grassy and floral, with a delicate perfume. Soft citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit, joined by nutty notes of almond and hazelnut.

    Palate: Soft mouthfeel with elegant orange and lemon notes, then some vanilla and toffee adding richness, but this is a delicate, fine-boned single malt with lovely balance and a refreshing character.

    Finish: The juicy citrus notes linger, inviting you to take another sip.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose:  Remarkably flowery, clean & soft

    Body:  Light to medium, firm, smooth

    Palate:  Flowery, peachy, notes of vanilla, delicate balance between sweetness & malty dryness

    Finish:  Long, gently warming

    I agree with what most others have said about this whisky this is a good whisky to have if you can't afford expensive whiskys. This is a very good and easy to drink whisky. The only thing I find slightly different to other opnions written here is that I find this whisky to be Semi Sweet and not 100% sweet as previous reviewers have said.

    I cannot discern all the tastes that some others describe with such precision and clarity. I just know the taste is extremely smooth and to my liking. I wish I could afford to drink this all the time. I love single malt Scotch and this is among the best I have tasted.

    I am a typical peat head so I wasn't expecting to be too wowed. This is a very good speyside. It is soft and sweet as to be expected, but also complex enough that I'm not bored. Nose: Flowers, cream, pears, green apples Palate: Soft and creamy, then spicy a citrus fading into peppermint Finish: Oranges and lemons, the cream comes back, then more spices and peppermint teeter tottering back and forth with the citrus and just a hint of copper

    This it another of my favourite single malts, it's very smooth and moorish, I find I drink it quite quickly, I only drink this on special occasions as it such a good quality, I would advise this as a gift

    The 12 is a definite stand by in my collection. For those of us that collect and drink scotch but can't afford 300 dollar bottles, this is one of those drams that needs to be in the cupboard. It's not the greatest whisky around, but it is very good and very smooth. Vanilla and fruit abound. Not a lot of depth to it, but a fantastically easy drinker at a very nice price

    Amazingly sweet! And great value for money too. Love the floral notes. Very easy to drink with tastes of fruit, apple, pear. Lovely.

    Beautiful bouquet, the body is a smooth and inviting.Slight floral scent and citrus comes through at the end.. alcohol is a little lacking in the mix.

    With citrus notes, almond and hazelnut. Not smoky at all. But good option for killing a bottle with friend :)

    I don't know what it used to be but I had 3 bottles in the last year (2016) and it's just an average whisky now. On nose, vanilla and green apples. On palate, honey and apples. Development is negligible. Finish is unnoticeable.
