A very fine blend of Scotch malt and grain whisky, produced in the nation’s capital, Edinburgh. The whisky is known for its high quality, containing a large proportion of Lagavulin, perhaps the one of the most prestigious distilleries in Scotland. Indeed, for a while, White Horse Distillers oversaw production at this distillery. This particular expression is called 1900, after the year that the whisky was first exported overseas. This is a little lighter than the standard expression, but still packs quite a lot of flavour. On the nose, this is a light and malty dram, with aromas of vanilla, nutmeg, toffee and slight wisp of smoke. The palate is light, creamy and soft, with tinned peaches, vanilla custard and cereal sweetness. A little crunch malt appears with time. The finish is short and sweet, with a touch of smoke and a punch of vanilla. A complex yet drinkable blend.
