This unique premium blended scotch whisky contains both malt and grain whisky distilled and matured on the banks of loch lomond in the very heart of scotland. Each barrel is selected for its character and maturity then expertly blended to create a well-balanced whisky that delivers a perfectly smooth finish. 40% abv nose big broad malt aromas build on first impression. There is strong hint of depth body and weight behind these early flavour notes. However there is when looked at carefully a very subtle light fruit soft fruit sweetness evident just behind the bigger more developed malt notes. A soft floral note appears once water is added. More the hint of early spring blossom than anything heavier and with that a subtle honeyed sweetness that develops a warming spiciness as time passes with the sense of cinnamon and nutmeg. Palate an extraordinarily dark fruity and sweet first impression. Seville orange marmalade on hot bread both sweet sharp but with a creamy maltiness. The fruit becomes fresher and more candied as the palate develops and once again there is a sweet but firm ginger quality to the mid palate. Marmalade notes give way to ginger snaps. The wood influences become far more evident. Now there are soft vanilla notes that then combine with emerging lighter fresher softer fruit flavours. More melon and apple with a light honeyed texture in the background. Honeyed sweet softer. Finish the remarkable palate with the pronounced cooked fruits and spice slowly subsides and there is a gentle fading sweetness a hint of floral notes on the wind. Gradually the soft fruits become softer and more luscious. There is a sense of very ripe melons giving way to a light syrupy finish.
