The 12 year FG is supposed to be fruity and nutty w/ a bit of spice. The 18 year FG is supposed to be oakier and spicier. I'm leaning a bit more toward the fruitier Malt.
Shame about the lilac box and label.
Edit - that was the 10yo.
I found the FG very well balanced, well "rounded"...if memory serves, a nice balance of malt, sherry, fruity notes and spicy notes...maybe just a hint of peat or smoke, I forget which. But it had some "heft" to it...not just light etc. My only quibble, just a small one, is that it seemed to be a bit too "polished," not raw enough...maybe that was because it's a blend, or maybe it was the fruity notes.
Anyway, I'd much prefer this over another blend like, say, Johnnie Walker Black or Chivas Regal 12, though I admit the FG has more sherry than those 2.
