Tasting Notes

Nose

Pungent, deep and rum-like aromas of sultana and raisin. Honey balances the gritty grain notes. Oak adds cocoa, tobacco and earth. A little floral with hyacinth and acacia notes.

Palate

Wow! Bold and intense with no shortage of wood spice and soft grain. Honey balances adding a sweet sheen to the dried fruits. Alcohol intensifies the spiciness.\n

Finish

Long and utterly gorgeous. Lingering dried fruit and spice. A little drying perhaps with tobacco notes.\n

Comment

Now, there’s a full-bodied grain. If you are still not convinced by great Scottish grain, then buy this!
