Royal Lochnagar 12 Year Old

Top 10 Single Malt Scotch

Royal Lochnagar 12 Year Old was a favorite of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and made GAYOT.com's Top 10 Single Malt Scotch list

Royal Lochnagar 12 Year Old
The Highlands

It's easy to slap the word "royal" into a product name, but this legendary Highland Single Malt really does have a royal connection. A favorite of both Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, this hard-to-find Scotch has long been held in high esteem in Britain, particularly for its classic flavor. Upfront you get earth, freshly cut grass, vibrant spice, a hint of sandalwood and hay. It finishes with light touches of fruit, juicy cereal barley, leather, brown sugar and a coffee maltiness. It makes for a perfect sipper to start off your evening, even if you're engaged in non-royal activities, like playing Texas Hold 'Em.

Price: $70
