Judges Tasting Notes

This outstandingly well-made example shows what a 12-year-old Scotch can do regarding subtle elegance, complexity, intensity and the composition of flavours. The nose is clean and fresh, with malty and earthy notes, a mineral edge, some gooseberries and even melons. Floral and zesty at the same time. The palate is smooth and balanced, with a harmony between fruit, spices, wood tannins and alcohol. A masterpiece. This is a very elegant but entertaining whisky.
