A marriage of fine scotch whisky by appointment to the Queen. A royal recommendation can’t be bad can it? The label also says Macallan and Highland Park have been used in the blend for “the smoothest possible taste”.
What of the blend in question, the nose has some sherry richness and a touch of malt and some brown sugar type sweetness completes a good start. The delivery on the palate is very smooth, whether its the smoothest possible (well I know I’ve had smoother whisky’s), I’d say no. The sherry is also evident in the flavours and there are some soft spices helping the show along. The finish is quite sweet and a touch bland after the initial intensity of the palate.
Overall I’d say this was a well crafted blend, but I’d recommend Black Grouse above this.
