This starts as an afternoon tea dram - butter crumpets with honey, honey on burnt toast - then honey-roast almonds, butter toffee, salt toffee gradually becomes more of an evening beside a smoky fire. The taste explodes this comfortable image - dirty smoke and hessian after a sweet start; the crumpets still buttery, but now burnt - and water continues the grubby theme - this is after all from Campbeltown (and an excellent example of the town’s No. 2 distillery) - with a whiff of struck matches behind pancakes lathered in maple syrup. Add only a little water. Now the texture is smooth, the sherry notes more apparent; sweet overall, with hessian in the finish.
