A gift from family who took a tour of the distillery. A superb easy-drinking dram in the dessert style. Toffee nose, floral notes develop if left for 30 mins or so. The palate is a nice malt hit of toffee, Horlicks and Werthers Original. Again plenty of sweetness on the finish, perfect following a hearty meal. A little post script, the website states that E150 is used yet the distillery tour made a point of stating the colour is entirely natural.
New emblem/crest, new packaging, new price, new label - SAME GOOD STUFF, consistent in quality through-out, tho' i miss the auld 12yo cask-strength. Aye, price i sthru the roof for ALL Scotch nowadays.
I live very close to this distillery and have ignored it for years thinking that all the great scotches come from elsewhere. How wrong can you be? This is quite simply a beautiful dram that puts the established elite very firmly in their place. Wonderful.
I would describe this as a very fine whisky. If you want a "knock your head off taste" then do not buy it. If you want refined and carefully made with skill, then this is for you. I think it represents great value for money for the quality
I love all malts from the sweet spay-sides to the peaty Islays but here is a real gem!go buy a bottle you won't regret it I promise.
