Royal Lochnagar 12 year old Malt Whisky Tasting Notes;
This fragrant Highland has a delightful balance of fruit and spices.
Strength: 40% ABV.
Colour: Pale amber. Body: Medium.
Nose: A relatively closed nose. Planed wood, light toffee, boat varnish. Linseed oil behind, even putty, and later a lychee-like acidity.
With water the acidity comes up (acid drops), and the nose sweetens. Still a pleasant fresh woodiness or leatheriness, the varnish now supported by artists turpentine. Warm sand. After a while, coffee dregs with brown sugar. Not an obvious nose.
Palate: Pleasantly acidic; such initial sweetness as there is quickly subsumed by acidity.
Finish: Dry to bitter; medium-length, with an attractive lingering sandalwood aftertaste.
