What's in a name? Leinburn 12 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Leinburn 12 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Pear and rhubarb crumble sprinkled with demerara sugar.
Palate: Creamy brandy sauce, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish: Vanilla and salted caramel.
Overall: This is a fruity and spicy Speyside.
A very nice Speyside dram. Light, fruity, with a long lingering smooth finish, and fantastic 'on the rocks'. It's actually 43% and not 40% as listed above.
Nice finish but a bit too spicy (or do I mean sharp?) for my taste. I'd have to dilute this or, crime of crimes, add a drop of cola.
(Note: I drink Balvenie Portwood, which is very smooth, so it's a matter of taste of course)
If you like spice, it's worth a go.
