Delicate and subtle, if the nose of Saint Magnus 12 year was predominantly on red fruits, then this version will be more on the yellow ones: pineapple, apricot, melon, apples, even some sour touch of lemon and lime instead of usual oranges. After a while you catch some grass, vanilla and flowers.
On the palate you will experience a sweet, oily mouthfeel. with flavors like: Smoke, white chocolate, vanilla, citrus, tropical fruits and malt notes, even some wax and nuts.
A long, sweet, citrusy and salty with classic “gentle smoky aftertaste”.
I do suspect there are some older spirits in this batch, such refinement and tenderness of initial Highland Park spirit I met in 20 – 30 yo independent bottlings matured in bourbon casks.
