The distillery was founded in 1810. The distillery fell into disrepair, and was rebuilt in the early 1960s by two local estate owners Robin Fletcher and Tony Riley-Smith. Their architect was William Delme-Evans. The work was completed in 1963, and it included the installation of taller stills, allowing the distillery to create a mix of malts. Source: Wikipedia
A very soft aroma makes this whiskey feel younger than 12 years, and while it's very easy to drink there's not a lot happening, it's not very robust. Some would say even a little plain.
We would’ve liked to get a little bit more of the fruit and spice promised on the package. We noticed that the aroma does open over time revealing slightly more complexity.
It's definitely a smooth whiskey with a mid-range simple finish.
