Interesting fact… Leinburn 12 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Leinburn 12 Year Old whiskey, instead of 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.

Malt whisky is at its best without ice and mixers.( AGHHHHHH)
Just add a teaspoon of cold still pure water, leave for a few moements slight swirl and sit back sip and enjoy. If you want mixers go and find a cheap blended.This is a very good malt whiskey, dont spoil it.

leinburn 12 is untouchable despite its low price for a great dram! I keep coming back to it after Glen Garioch 1797, cardhu 12, buchanain's 18 and glendronach 12.
