Tasting Notes by Donski
So thanks to the tax man i was able to purchase some whiskys to try/enjoy, these were Talisker 10yo, lagavulin 16yo, glenkinchie 12yo, cragganmore 12yr, dalwhinnie 15yo and highland park 12yo
So far i have tried the Talisker, Dalwhinnie 15yo and glenkinchie 12 and have enjoyed them all with the talisker being the stand out so far.
Now its time for the Cragganmore 12yo which is the only speyside of these tastings so a little exited.
Nose: Very nice, i get some apples among other fruit, a bit of sweetness and a touch of smoke.
Taste: Similar to the nose with the fruits but the apples dont stand out as much. Bit of spice and sweetness and a very smooth dram.
Finish: Nice and long, very dry making you want to drink more. The smoke on the nose comes back here
Overall a very nice whisky, nice and smooth and easy to drink.
