I'm not sure why this whisky isn't listed on Connosr (yet), as it's quite readily available in Belgium (so I presume in the UK and Scotland as well).

As was to be expected, the nose of the one is a little more complex than his younger brother, the 10 Year Old. Apart from the white fruit, honey and heather, this one has some freshly cut grass and light spices.

This 12 Year Old has a full body, nicely topped off with some spices. The obligatory malt, fruit and oak touches are present of course.

The finish on this one is much better because it's longer and has a spicy kick.

Hence, with a price tag of approx. 40 EUR, I believe this 12 Year Old to be the best choice in the Fine Oak series.

This is indeed a decent dram. The sherry oak range is basically unavailable over here in Australia, so we make do with the fine oak range. The 12 is where I would start.
