LMDW tasting note: Color: Dark amber. Nose: Deep and complex. A symphony of fruity and floral aromas invades us. In the background, there are intense notes of butterscotch and a freshness coming to balance the wood. The nose continues to evolve and develop. Palate: Lively and firm. It is marked by chocolate and butterscotch. Finale: Long, gourmet with notes of licorice and praline, it still remains as malty. The rose and the violet bring a touch both heady and aerial. It is punctuated by tobacco, ripe fruit and sweet spices. Comment LMDW: Floral, fruity & woody, Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve is an elegant and refined malt, a sumptuous digestive that will be enjoyed preferably in the evening. Launched in 2007 to commemorate the first visit to Queen Victoria's distillery in 1848, each bottle is numbered. A very limited cuvée, it is also an excellent gift idea of exception.
