Inverleven Scotch whisky Tasting Notes..
Colour: Light straw.
Neat Without Water
Nose: Soft fruits - peaches and strawberries. Subtle spices and a malty note. A rounding vanilla sweetness
Palate: Spicy with hints of cedar wood and white pepper. Some fragrant/floral flavours develop. Drying.

With Water
Nose: More citrus fruit aromas detectable with a slight waxy note. The sweet, vanilla element remains with a hint of roasted malt.
Palate: Perfumed flavours with traces of liquorice and aniseed. A little fruitiness emerges.
Body: Light.
Finish: Subtle hints of fruit and spices
Cask Type: Refill Bourbon Barrels.
Whisky Style: Described as a “Highlander wearing the trews”, perhaps more body and character than one would expect from a Lowland Malt but a pleasant, refreshing whisky.
