A gentle 12 year old Speyside single malt from the Tamnavulin distillery, drawing its waters from the River Livet.
The nose is quite soft with a proliferation of cereals and barley. Notes of malt extract with a juicy sweetness, a herbal note develops with cut spearmint leaves. The palate is quite light and very well-balanced. There are notes of soft herbs and eucalyptus oil with barley sugars. The finish is quite quick but with a herbal quality with a touch of bitterness.
A friend was given a bottle 13 years ago and he never opened it. A life changing event took place in my life and he thought it was time to crack open the bottle,its cork crumbled as we opened it and we had to sip and sift the cork but was the BEST I've had.

Expected light whisky with little body. . . Instead medium-heavy body, yet sweet with mild aftertaste. Diageo has got it right to keep this one. Fine blending whisky & that's not slagging off its taste
