John Crabbie’s legendary whisky company has been given a new lease of life and is to start producing whisky again in their new Edinburgh distillery. In the meantime they have launched a series of whiskies from various distilleries – this 12-year-old single is from an undisclosed Island distillery.
Nose: Intensely malty and fresh with light notes of green grass and a touch of juicy citrus.
Palate: Rich full flavour with a fabulous butter-sweet balance, followed by a touch of sweet honey and notes of grilled orange and green tea.
Finish: Long, smoky with a delicious peppery spice.
