A must for those in search of the best a distillery can offer. Distilled when the stills performed in perfect harmony.
1978, 18 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Gooseberries with delightfully fresh barley, a sprinkling of unrefined sugar and gentle oak.
Palate: A busy malt boasting an extraordinary degree of complexity for a lowlander.
Finish: Light and elegant with the fabulous malt lingering to the death.
Comment: A must for those in search of the best a distillery can offer. Distilled when the stills performed in perfect harmony.
Nose: Dubbin. Linseed. Flowery
Palate: Pastry. Malty. Sweet. Butterscotch. Spicy. Straight-ahead. Uncomplicated.
Finish: Very clean and crisp.
Comment: This seems to me the definitive light tasting (triple-distilled) Lowlander. In theory, such whiskies mature young, but this has aged beautifully.
