Highland Queen " Majesty" 16 Year Old
Tasting Notes: Ahh! the leaves are starting to turn, and fall, the air is crisper, and as a wee white dog with a double coat of fur, I like the nip in the air and the smells on my autumn walks! It reminds me of my ancestral highland home.....
It also is a good time to pull the cork on a new whisky to try after an invigoration walk on the river trails.
This one, Highand Queen has a rich and mature nose, with notes of dry fruit, chocolate and spices and a hint of shortbread cookies (my favourite!).
To taste, it is sweet, full and exceptionally well rounded. The flavour is initially of toffee and barley sugar, with a hint of smoke and pear flavours.
This is an easy going dram, and perfect for New Scotch Drinkers. Slainte!
