General description

The nose is first apple skins, with a fruit-like tartness. Some sulphuric vegetals: cabbage and broccoli. The tartness is immediately apparently here. Hints of vanilla and sugary caramel.

The taste is sherried oak, with a second wave or more apples skins, with a spicy rind. There is a collection of tree fruits: apple, pear, with a real tannic tartness/bitterness combo.

The finish is metallic and charcoal. The tartness is still there but shares the stage. Some salt at the tail end. Not exactly in my wheelhouse, but I'm digging it just fine.

General description

This 12-year-old single malt Scotch tends to be a little bit harsh on the tongue to start, possibly due to being 86 proof. It fits the basic flavor profile as Glenlivet 12. There are some differences as this is a little more complex. However, it has a short finish and mild flavor, which to me makes it falls short of a higher rating. Reasonably priced for its category.
