The Speyside 12yo 40%

April 2012

One of the miniatures for my first entry. A solo tasting at home, and a pleasant surprise.

Nose: honey, warm, welcoming.
Mouth: much the same- honey and barley. Fills the mouth. Stays very pleasant.
Finish: warm, lingering flavours as above, nothing unwanted at the end.

OK, it's not the most complex malt out there. Never heard of the distillery before I got the gift set, and it's hardly a memorable experience, but still— it's nice. It's an example of one I would certainly forget about if I hadn't started this blog, which would be a shame, because it's a very reasonable find and one I'd happily revisit.
