Lang’s Tasting Notes

Posted: April 16, 2012 in Blended Scotch Whisky, Blended Whisky

Lang’s Supreme 5 year old 40%

Bottled by Ian Macleod Distillers

Tasted: Aug 2010

A crisp nose with beautifully floral young grain and underlying honeyed and malty fruit. Good intensity with a pleasant sweetness and some grain botanicals. The palate is pretty much like the nose. Straightforward, with a pleasant bitter/ sweet balance with a smidgen of oak on the finish.

Lang’s Select 12 year old Blended Whisky 40%

Bottled by Ian Macleod Distillers

Tasted: Dec 2013

Flat and lightly fruity aromas with hints of re-fill sherry and citrus. The aromas become quite cardboardy and unclean with a touch of spirity grain.

The palate is flat, drenched in caramel and generally pretty homogenous. The spirit has a uncleanly sweet-ish fruitiness with a hot, industrial finish.
