This is an EXCELLENT whisky in this particular style. Excellent value, and miles ahead of the big corporate brands. Plenty of vanilla and spice, with pleasant red fruit, banana, marzipan. Very smooth and easy drinking.
Very smooth and definitely taste the butterscotch and honey. Surprisingly not much sherry notes.
For the price this is an absolute steal. Tasted the whole range at the Show and found the 12 year old to have a very distinctive creamy feel on the palate with lingering sweet aftertaste. Not the layers of flavour of some of the older expressions but this is a very, very nice drink for all occasions. All things considered this is 5 star at this price.
