Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, Buchanan's 12 Year De Luxe exudes a lustrous golden-amber hue, promising a whisky of maturation and depth. The liquid possesses a medium viscosity, indicative of its balanced character.
The nose is an elegant blend of nuanced aromas. Initial wafts of green apple and honey give way to complex notes of citrus, dried fruit, and subtle floral undertones. The addition of a faint smokiness suggests the inclusion of some Islay or Island malts in the blend.
The initial palate is replete with soft, fruity notes, predominantly green apple and pear, which are swiftly enlivened by a touch of spice—perhaps a nod to the Speyside and Highland whiskies in the blend. The backdrop provides a contrasting complexity with flavors of toasted oak and malty sweetness, underpinned by a slight peatiness.
The finish is long and rewarding. Vanilla and caramel surface and meld with the lingering warmth of light spices and a touch of peat smoke, making for a fulfilling, layered ending to each sip.
Smooth and approachable, Buchanan's 12 Year De Luxe offers a medium body that belies its intricate flavor profile. There is an almost silky texture to the liquid, which is accompanied by a warming, yet never overpowering, alcohol presence.
