The standard release of Highland Queen blended Scotch whisky, named after Mary Queen of Scots. Like much of the range, it offers very good value for money.
Nose: Some dark honey, caramel, allspice, cooked apples and pear drops.
Palate: Crisp apples now, nougat, more honey, subtle vanilla, perhaps even some tarragon.
Finish: Clean and quite short.
Overall: For a basic blend, you could do a lot worse!
