Stronachie, 12 year old, 43%
Price: $50.00 ● Issue: Spring 2011 ● Reviewer: John Hansell
A “branded” malt, meaning we don't know which distillery this whisky came from. Fresh and quite fruity (peach, nectarine, golden raisin, orange, pineapple) with a nice underlying honey, vanilla, and caramel sweetness. Soft, gentle, malty finish. It's clean, nicely balanced, and pleasant.
