Member Ratings and Notes
Light, crisp and easy drinking fruitiness with some malty/grassy notes that add a little bitterness that works.  I take this over the Glenfiddich every day but the price difference needs some work. 
The nose on the 12 year old definitely has some of the fruity notes from the BenRiach Heart of Speyside, but they are more muted and have more malt. The palate is less fruit juice than fruit wine with some more complex fruit notes, such as berries, overlayed on a malty canvass. The finish is more malty than fruity.  

N: Lemon iced tea, wet rusty metal, hard candy

P: Weird waxy bitterness with yellow dry vegatal notes

F: neutral
