Speyside blended malt by Douglas Laing – 46%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Medium gold
Nose: Stewed apples, fudge, breakfast cereals, lemon zest, hints of pepper.
Palate: Bircher muesli with apples, pears and nuts, vanilla, lemon zest, hints of caramel, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Medium long and spicy with some barrel char.
Overall: Young whisky can be excellent, especially with strong peat or sherry. But this dram is just naked with nothing to hide its immaturity.
Rating: 73/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
