Review and Tasting
Sampled on 26/10/2013
Clear, deep golden amber.
Cherry wood, toasty oak and old wardrobe lifted by stewed plum, raisins, linseed oil and nubuck leather.
Initial fruity honey sweetness is quickly countered by dry spicy buttery oak to create an elderly cognac-like but sprightly palate with some serious Glaswegian attitude and spice.
Very long. Old wardrobe, vanilla and spice. Dries as it fades.
