Old Parr Superior 18 YO
As a blended Scotch, Old Parr Superior 18 YO offers a balanced approach, yet is able to maintain a complex air about it. The amber color displayed in the final product helps bring about a vibrant yearning to sample its wares. The aroma that one first encounters is that of Scottish peat that has a smoky appeal, a nod to its heritage. What follows is a sweeter blend of fruit just waiting to be plucked from the trees, with a swirl of vanilla surrounding it. That combination of smoke and peat also make their appearance on the palate, with the spicy, oak-like features coming through. Those also expecting a sweetness to arrive will not disappointed, with such features as raisins, honey, vanilla and caramel all detected in the final taste. The caramel lingers until the smooth finish is a long one that provides a concluding satisfaction to be treasured.
