The Spice King 12

Country: Scotland
Type: Blended Malt
Bottler: Wemyss Malts
ABV: 40%
Score: 88 points

As might be expected from the name, the nose has soft spices, especially nutmeg, allspice, and ginger, along with hints of honey and almonds. The taste starts off smooth at first, with good cinnamon and cilantro notes that build up quickly but don’t overpower honey and soft hints of orange peel underneath. The finish lingers well with allspice and hints of black tea with honey. (January, 2013)
