Nice and round Highland nose. Reminds me of Glengoyne 10 or Glenturret 10. Has a little bit of everything but the 21 years don't really translate into extra maturity or complexity.
Not as sweet as other blends maybe.
There is a distinctive grain note (go figure) which is not unpleasant but wasn't there on the nose. The alcohol feels a bit here despite only 43 ABV. It's not peppery or gingery but contradicts the nice nose a bit which can be mistaken for a Single Malt's nose.
Relatively short and forgettable.
