Rich, perfumed aroma, rounded and full with heather, honey, notes of sweet pineapple, butter toffee, toast, cereal and vanilla. Great depth, sweet golden syrup and honey followed by spices and orange peel. Glorious, the perfume characteristics become more spicy, with a zesty hint of orange peel in a decidedly dry finish.
This fresh and springy 12 year old is from Dewar’s, a brand known best for blended Scotch. This single malt is “the heart of all the Dewar’s blends,” the producer says. Despite delicate notes of vanilla and white flowers, this whisky surprises the palate with a waft of peat before heading into a crisp finish.
