Cask No. 123.07 Spicy & dry

Unusual and highly enjoyable

sold out

We encountered a totally magnificent nose – plentiful plum jam, candy floss, toffee crisp, fudge, jammy dodgers and port wine, but with deeper layers of tobacco, liquorice and Eastern spices. The palate had slightly burnt damson jam, fruity toffee, fruit chutney and fig rolls – teasingly tannic, mildly minerally and vaguely sulphury, but acceptably so. The reduced nose uncovered ripe watermelon, fruit pastilles, wine gums, icing sugar, sweet sultanas and blackcurrant yoghurt. Adding water transformed the palate into a complete joy – strawberry toffees, Astro Belts, fruity tobacco – unusual and highly enjoyable. The distillery is very near the West Highland Way (south end).
