First impression the Panel voiced, this is a sniffers dram; glue, solventy and warm paper from a photocopier in use a few decades ago, you know what we mean. With time fruity/earthy notes appear like apple, banana leaf, aloe plant, cactus and mango trees; we have moved into a glass house at the Botanics. The taste is hot, sweet/sour, a creamy horseradish and almost numbing. With water we left the glasshouse and are outside in a tropical garden during a very heavy downpour. It feels hot, wet and damp with floral and fruity aromas all around us. The taste now sweet, like a very ripe orange, creamy like vanilla custard as well as fresh like an apple sorbet. This distillery, starting with Glen, is named after Scotland’s smallest city.
