The Single Cask Balmenach 2003 12 Years Old (50% abv)
Nose: Easy and approachable, with thyme and mint initially followed by soft caramel and orange peel. Palate: Well rounded and gentle, with nuts and sweetness in the form of toffee and vanilla, still with a fruity edge. Finish: Finishes on soft malt and citrus elements.
