The Glencallum - Royal Deluxe Blend

Yah, a blend, but how could I say no to a royal DELUXE blend?!?  Something different, I'll give it a roll.

Despite its claims of being royal AND deluxe, my expectations are low.  The aroma is caramelly but heavy on sugar.  I was expecting the dreaded cloying of a cheap blend.  And it's there but not overpowering.  It's dry and slightly peaty with a slight flash of alcohol and a slightly oily finish.  Interesting. Not a favourite, but for a blend it provides the right amount of challenge.  Yah, not bad.  For a sub $40 bottle it's worth a trip but I won't go back in a hurry.

A royal challenge but not so deluxe.  3 shots.
