The Antiquary Superior Deluxe Blend 12 Years Old
Blended scotch whisky
40% ABV, RRP £33.99 for 70cl.
What they say:
Nose: peaty, earthy and solid, while in direct contrast displaying delicate fresh lemony lime characters. Nicely rounded and malty.
Taste: a mellow yet feisty palate; predominately malty, citrus flavours come through well with a gentle peaty touch.
Finish: short yet full with a pleasant lingering peatiness.
What I say:
A nice blend with little of the grain whisky oiliness and acidity and a lot of the single malt qualities.
Light golden yellow straw
Fruity with a hint of oak and brown sugar
Sweet, soft and light with lemon and citrus
Fruity with hints of plum and cherry, short with a subtle warmth
