Another well-made Speyside dram which deserves some attention.
Glasgow Distillery Company
27 Years Old, Cache 2
Year of Bottling
Nose: All the right notes in all the right places, this gives heather, vanilla, old book shops and some fresh varnish notes. The heather develops into lavender over time.
Palate: Smooth and oily, this is a drinker’s dram which delivers lovely notes of sunflower seeds, royal jelly, sweet orange peel and rich oak. Deserves a \nbig pour.
Finish: Medium and slightly dry, it isn’t too old and has good lingering spices.
Comment: Another well-made Speyside dram which deserves some attention.
Nose: Dense, walnutty sherry with hints of wood smoke, Armagnac-esque prunes and dried fruit along with hints of freshening citrus, minerals and late mocha and earth notes.
Palate: Intense oxidised fruit and treacle. Quite nutty with walnuts, spice and dark coffee. Becomes rather tannic on the middle which gives it a very raw cask feel. \n
Finish: Reasonable length with lingering dry, slightly bitter tannins and a smoky after-taste
Comment: Bitter at the end, but this certainly has its merits.
