Color: Bright gold
Nose: Very aromatic and flowery overall, like breathing in a country garden. Noticeable vanilla, cut flowers and beneath these, a clean, toasty note. Becomes increasingly sweet and creamy, with a lightly aromatic edge and fresh citrus.
Body: Light and smooth
Palate: A sweet, soft start, like crème anglaise, soon becoming flowery again. A really smooth delivery. The mid-palate is crisp and then the flavor settles into a tightly focused bundle of butter-icing, lemon cheesecake and freesias.
Finish: Herbal and drying slightly
First Tasted: April 2008
This is my home brand. So I am rather partial to it. It has a very clean creamy smooth flowery flavor to it that bitters just slightly with some lemony tones to it. It doesn’t change much across the tasting, but it’s consistency is the thing of legends. As much as I love my home Scotch it still ranks about 34th in my overall top Scotch list. I just prefer a stronger flavor with alot of spice and peat and smoke. This is just far more relaxed then what I tend to prefer. However if you want a very clean consistent Scotch this is for you.
