The label features the Duke of Wellington statue outside the Glasgow's Gallery of Modern Art, which since the late 1980s has more often than not had an orange traffic cone placed like a comedy hat on Wellington’s head, a practice said to symbolise the Glaswegian sense of humour. Although discouraged by the local authorities, the practice continues and the cone-topped statue has become one of Glasgow’s most iconic images.

Lightly salty creamy malt with sweet coconut and lingering salty peat.
