MITCHELL´S 12 years old 43%

Modest sea saltiness. Sugar free toffee. Pleasantly oaky.

At first, marvellous toffee cake with ice cream tries to remain on even terms with the saltiness. The latter eventually wins out, in the process almost metamorphing into salmiac.

Salty liquorice in almost full command. Some prickly spices accompanies it along the way. Surprisingly long for a whisky of this stature.

A blend from the folks at Springbank. Containing something like 60% malt, mostly from their own make. Apparently this has recently been discontinued, so you should waste no time in hunting down a bottle. Especially considering the fact that this beats most malts that I´ve tried.

Rating: 8,5/10
