Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Armagnac and cognac, prunes, and treacle cake.
Palate: Complex and long-lasting, with raisins, cherries and chocolate. European oak to the fore.
Finish: A sophisticated complex of flavour, with maple syrup, dark fruits and apples.
Comment: Lowlands just as aperitifs? Pah! A well constructed malt with varied wood flavour, although the prevalence of sherry flavours makes it atypical of the region.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Deep and rich. Stewed fruit, raisins, molasses, roasted red pepper, violet. In time, there's resinous notes, tamarind concentrate, walnuts then cocoa. Malt way underneath.
Palate: Sweet and sour. Pomegranate/grenadine, dried orange peel thick berry juice. Lightly tannic, treacle, black fruits. Splits with water (don't dilute).
Finish: Tingling and thick.
Comment: As warm and welcoming as a real Glasgow kiss.
