I wanted to try this after being slightly disappointed with the 18 yo but finding the 21yo and 16yo (Travel Retail only) excellent whiskies. The 12 yo is a classy malt for the sub £30 bracket, very drinkable and perfect as an after dinner dram or with a cigar.
Balanced nose with honeyed/toffee aroma, not too treacly on the pallet unlike the 18yo and only a little water needed if any. light viscous on the tongue with a gentle smokiness and peppery bite finish. Very enjoyable and as yet hard to find a comparable Whisky at this price.
