Royal Lochnagar Selected Edition 2008

Country: Scotland

Region: Highlands

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 43%

Score: 92 Points

The nose is rich and fruity with notes of figs, treacle, and oak, while water releases honey, straw, and a touch of spices. The flavor starts off sweet, then quickly turns astringent with notes of dried fruits and brown sugar. The finish is complex and warm on the back of the throat.
