Black Tartan, Highland Blended Malt, 40%

Review #666
From Skene Scotch Whisky comes this Highland Blended Malt. It is a vatting of four “premium” Highland malts. Overripe fruits and a bit of citrusy notes in the smell. The sweetness comes afterwards – vanilla and toffee. Hints of oak in the background as well.

The classic Highland character is more noticeable in the taste. Toffee and fruits. Fresh white fruits and exotic fruits mixed with a dash of dried fruits. The toffee notes turns a bit more to caramel in the finish.

Actually quite flavourful considering that it is only 40%. The sweetness from the casks have been released great into the whisky and pampers your palate. From the taste I expected a more sharp taste, but it is actually quite soft. I will give this 83/100 (20/21/21/21).
