Honey or Toffee

Postby TroyM » Fri Feb 04, 2011 12:50 am

Can anyone suggest a malt that has a pronounced honey or toffee flavour? Apart from HP that is.

I get toffee in some of the big sherried whiskies like Macallan.

The Balvenie is often referred to as "the honeyed malt". My notes indicate a good bit of caramel in Glen Garioch.

Actually, I forgot about the Talisker, especially the 18 and the 175th. Those both have good honey notes.

I find Aberfeldy 12 Year Old to be fairly honeyed as well.

Bunnahabhain - 12, 18 or 25 each have a pronounced toffee smell/taste to me.
