"Swing strikes the perfect balance between luxuriousness and sophistication", wrote the owners.

Colour: Full gold.

Nose: There is an oaky spiciness at first nosing, a bit similar to that of the new Black Bottle, but it's otherwise both leafier and rounder. Oranges, earl grey tea, honey and touches of ginger. Pretty pleasant, I'd say.

Mouth: Rather full bodied despite the low strength, very 'traditional', with some malt, honey, toasted bread, roasted nuts, marmalade and butterscotch. Again, all that isn't unpleasant, quite the opposite.

Finish: Medium length, rather smokier and drier, with also walnuts and more toasted bread. The marmalade is back in the aftertaste.

Comments: Easy, not dull, well-defined, pleasing...
