Description

A favourite of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, being conveniently situated close by Balmoral Castle. Royal Lochnagar was originally a key ingredient in VAT 69, but most production is now for single malts.

Royal Lochnagar 12 year old is a fragrant Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky with a delightful balance of fruit and spices.

Tasting Notes:

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, however.

Palate: Pleasant; an initial sweetness is quickly overtaken by acidity.

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

Body: Medium bodied, even reticent.
