Stronachie 18 is a bottling of whisky from the benrinnes distillery, bottled at 46%…

Nose.. Initially  sweet, with a hint of fried banana, honey and soft scents of heather, some dried fruit and a faint citrus peel scent.

Palate.. At first it feels creamy,  a little sweeter than I expected, more vanilla, toffee notes, some dried fruits, apricot, plum and a slight orange peel note, toffee popcorn, and a little dark chocolate offer something to chew on..

Finish.. Not over long but enjoyable.. A fresh mouthfeel with a little oak finish..

Thoughts.. Enjoyable, not overly complex, but worth a try, something for an evening with friends..
