A Blended Malt from Old Perth, with no added colour and non-chill filtered. It’s a mix of single malt whiskies from distilleries in the Glenlivet region in Speyside, fully matured in Sherry casks. Sweet sherry notes in the smell to begin with. After a couple of minutes some spices, tobacco and malted barley comes forward.

Very flavourful in the taste. Dried fruits and spices. The spices is a great combination of spices from the oak, and spices from the Sherry. Long finish where the dried fruits and spices mixes and mellows beautifully and some deep notes of oranges appears.

This has a great balance and is actually quite complex. The balance between the different single malt whiskies from the different distilleries, goes quite well hand in hand. What a fantastic 12 year old! I will give this 88/100 (22/22/22/22).
