  2. Collector57 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Actually quite an enjoyable and drinkable malt. A nice contrast to the standard 12. Certainly won't be to everyones tastes as the dry finish against the fruit sweet start may jar. But for me that's a nice contrast that adds a little complexity to the overall experience
    • Nose
      Standard 'livet 12 only more so. Fruity and very pleasant. Quite sweet with a trace of coconut
    • Taste
      Very fruity and sweet (over-ripe fruit) - but I can't pinpoint the exact fruit(s). Traces of cherry perhaps. Not sure
    • Finish
      As the palate fades, the vanilla and oak take over. Becomes quite dry in contrast to the early sweetness. Quite creamy and quite long.
