One of the most recognisable whisky brands in the world, this family owned distillery continues to successfully produce and market quality scotch.
Nose Thin caramel accompanies strong vanilla notes. Newly fallen apples, mown grass and a little white chocolate round off what is a very pleasant experience.
Palate The caramel thickens up, helped by a somewhat oily mouthfeel. Bitter, not quite ripened apples add bite to an otherwise gentle and uncomplex palate.
Finish Fresh Vanilla and apples are all that are left, the finish lingers a little but could not be called anymore than short.
In conclusion this scotch performs adequately for its £35 price tag. It’s very agreeable but lacks the complexity to keep me coming back. A great choice for newbies or anyone looking for a daily dram.
