As our fable goes, the lands of the Royal Deeside were blanketed by a thick and chilling fog until a proud stallion, white as snow, tore through the icy veil. Majestic in every stride and immortal in his being, the stallion glowed with the warmth of spring. Ice melted under hoof. Grass sprung to life. In this tale of winter’s undoing, the stallion’s rolling gallop powered the stills of Royal Lochnagar, giving this Scotch the spritely freshness of spring.
Golden as the sun, this vivid malt surges with aromas that hint of orange zest and green apple on a mossy base. It rolls across the palate with a rich and creamy-smooth texture, an intense barley-sugar sweetness with a luscious fruity acidity. Water brings up a touch of white grapes, growing smoother still. The lengthy finish is dulcet and bright, like winter’s end.
