Really, a very nice color, pure gold. Quick, long legs also say this is going to be a simple dram. Just a little honey, citrus and maybe a little red apple on the nose, the 12yo is keeping it simple. Across the palate it is pretty light, no oil, smooth and easy. The finish is a bit drying, medium in length with some heather, only slight pepper and ginger with a staleness at the end. For some reason the alcohol seems more prominent than I expected, numbing a little. Overall, an average and simple dram without much fanfare. I agree with the comment that this is a dram to drink while playing poker/cards with the boys.
