An Cnoc 12
It is a very light looking malt. Probably shouldn't have iced it but old habits die hard. The smell was very inviting though. Light, yes, but a good hint of caramel.
The initial taste is, again, light but with a sharp briskness that seems to light up your mouth with a very slight hint of sea salt and that small hint of caramel again.
Everything travels along smoothly and there's a slight cloying to the after-taste. It's the only minor fault in the whole experience. It's a smooth overall scotch but it is definitely a lightweight compared to some of the more flavourful entries in this blog.
Light, refreshing, simple. 3 shots.
