Distilled In: The Village of Rothes in Speyside
Average Price (Per Under the Label): $24
Looks Like: Classic caramel color, not dissimilar to anCnoc.
Smells Like: A fresh-cut lawn fertilized with vanilla.
Tastes Like: Predominately oak. The somewhat oily viscosity, which does linger on the tongue, may be off-putting to some, but it does finish with some fruity notes without entirely letting go of its impressive char. And, ultimately, for under $25, this is a terrific starter single malt or essential bottle to have on hand when feeling like a generous pour.
Goes Well With: A nice Italian meal would actually mingle nicely with its textures, although a medium-well burger comes readily to mind. Rocks might be recommended with this one, but it’s not without nuance when neat.
