Review by Royal Lochnagar

« This review is also available in Dutch »
Colour

Pale amber.

Nose

Not obvious to begin with. Planed wood, light toffee, boat varnish. Linseed oil behind, even putty, and later a lychee-like acidity. With water the acidity comes through (acid drops), and the nose sweetens. Still a pleasant fresh woodiness, followed by warm sand. After a while, coffee with brown sugar

Palate

Pleasant; an initial sweetness is quickly overtaken by acidity.

Finish

Dry; medium-length, with an attractive lingering sandalwood aftertaste.

Conclusion

Royal Lochnagar 12 year old is a fragrant Highland single malt with a delightful balance of fruit and spices.
