For that extra touch of sophistication. The whisky in this blend has matured for 8 years; but most of the malts are 10 to 12 years old, helping to create an exceptional, velvety taste.
The Scots Gold 8 Year Old was commended by No Nonsense Whisky for presenting 'a much higher malt content including a bit of Islay smoke, the nose brings vanilla, honey and fudge, as well a heathery floralness. The palate mirrors the nose, with the heather giving a depth and complexity"
Nose: Malty, fresh oak, ginger and fruit.
Palate: Spicy with a pleasing mouth tingle,
good richness and faint smoke.
Finish: Continued spice and soft fruit.
Scots Gold 8 Year Old is a light, rounded, smooth and honeyed whisky with just enough spice and tannin from the cask to give it body, depth, shape and flavour. This is premium whisky making of the highest quality. A subtle, sophisticated quality blend which reveals its secrets slowly. Highly impressive.
Rounded and expressive on the nose, with a rich malty heart, vanilla, toffee, apple chips, dried banana, and an array of freshly ground spices. Flavors of delicious caramel, banana, red apple, and vanilla custard keep the taste buds occupied as the spices slowly build up a head of steam. The controlled delivery of flavor and balance from this blend is impressive, though there's still sufficient punch for mixing.
