Insider knowledge: Stronachie 12 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Stronachie 12 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Heather honey, malt. Grassy, fruity and dry with hints of almond.
Palate: Creamy and spicy with notes of malt, a touch of smoke, more almond, then toffee and fruit.
Finish: Medium with nutty notes.
Reason being that bourbon distillers may not re-use their barrels so the Scots, being Scots, can pick them up cheap.

Bought at specs hoping to be in same class as similarly priced single malts. disappointed at the prominent American bourbon taste up front. Bourbon casks are for bourbon. Why do scotch distilleries do that?
