Details

This new version of Gold Label pays homage to the old version by maintaining many of the same whiskies within the blend, including the 'signature malt' of Clynelish.  The main difference is the range of ages within the whisky, which previously had a minimum age of 18 years.

The colour is golden yellow with a hint of amber and the nose is instantly captivating. There are plenty of sweet aromas - toffee, butterscotch, peach, vanilla and honey especially - and these are tempered by some bittersweet cereals and a healthy whiff of earthy peat smoke.

On the palate this feels light, soft and delicate, but with plenty of obvious sweetness again. The vanilla and honey notes are particularly prominent, with further toffee and dried fruit (especially sultana and apple) backing them up. The sweetness is again balanced by a bittersweet barley note. Some background earthy smoke and wood spice (think of cinnamon and nutmeg) finish things off.

The finish is delicious and laden with honey, before turning a little drier and spicier towards the end. The soft smoke lasts longest before finally fading.
