Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    • Appearance

      Pale amber.

    • Nose

      Not obvious to begin with. Planed wood, light toffee, boat varnish. Linseed oil behind, even putty, and later a lychee-like acidity. With water the acidity comes through (acid drops), and the nose sweetens. Still a pleasant fresh woodiness, followed by warm sand. After a while, coffee with brown sugar.

    • Body


    • Palate

      Pleasant; an initial sweetness is quickly overtaken by acidity.

    • Finish

      Dry; medium-length, with an attractive lingering sandalwood aftertaste.

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Advocate

    • Diageo's smallest distillery and another that has worm tubs. The character here is grassy: think hay and straw rather than lawn clippings. There's just a hint of cereal behind, and a fresh, roasted spiciness. The palate has good central sweetness where you just get a hint of fruit. Light and fresh, and a good afternoon dram.

    We really enjoy Royal Lochnagar 12 year old scotch and were lucky enough to sample it and buy some while visiting Scotland. We recently ordered some through the Whisky Exchange and it was shipped to us in Florida. The packing was well done and we received it in just a few days. Very good experience.
