Royal Lochnagar 12 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Founded in 1845 by John Begg

Location Highland region Eastern district

Water source Springs in the foothills of Lochnagar.

This fragrant Highland has a delightful balance of fruit and spices.
Strength: 40% ABV

Appearance: Pale amber.

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.

Body: Medium.
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.
