Review and Tasting

Sampled on 26/10/2013

Appearance

Clear, deep golden amber.

Aroma

Cherry wood, toasty oak and old wardrobe lifted by stewed plum, raisins, linseed oil and nubuck leather.

Taste

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.

Aftertaste

Very long. Old wardrobe, vanilla and spice. Dries as it fades.
