    C: With very light-modern sherry action, we’re starting to enter whisky adulthood at 12 years, though funnily enough I miss the 10yo’s youthful song.

    • Nose
      Malty, floral, and fruity, with the tart citrus of many an entry-level 12-year-old. Some pineapple and coconut speak of the ex-bourbon-matured components. Beneath that, some well-aged wood notes with slight spices and a whiff of sherry. This feels light, but in true Highland fashion, it simultaneously signals that there will also be a substantial, robust aspect to the experience. The nose becomes less fresh and instead more rounded and deeper / darker after the first sip(s).
    • Taste
      Vanilla and florals appear first. Fresh without becoming fizzy. Then it's the fruits' turn, and, as it begins to go down, creamy caramel and a tinge of wood enter the equation. In other words, it transitions from bright and fresh to settled and refined. Very impressive development for its age. A whisky that immediately convinces you that it is the product of careful maturation and sound wood management; you get the sense that no one has cut any corners here.
    • Finish
      Fruit and oak, oak and fruit. Ends with still discernible citric bite and restrained tanninicity. After a minute, a welcome sense of coffee appears and remains for quite a while. Medium to long finish, especially if you take the age into account. An elegant affair throughout.
