Royal Lochnagar 12yo, 40%.
Dull golden orange.
Aroma is orangey, orange blossom, fragrant and citrussy, petals. Good aroma for sure. Very cohesive. A touch muted but what's there is pleasant. ‘Delicate’ is probably the best word.
Taste is very easy, quite light and subtle on the palate, well-rounded. Fresh and citrussy, delicate floral and fruity esters. It doesn't come across as underpowered at 40%. This would be an amazing beginner's whisky. Lovely - and just the easiest spirit you could drink. Perfect for the beginning of an evening, or a summer's day whisky. 3.65/87
