    SMWS AT Winter 2002 list:

    Cranachan with nutmeg
    This distillery in Rothes was built in the late 1890s as an extension of Glen Grant and was originally called Glen Grant number 2, although here never produced a similar whisky, the distillery was closed after three years and the company stood still until the renovation in 1965. This venerable sample has aged gracefully. The color is that of Chardonnay, the fragrance rich, nutty, slightly acidic, gentle and interesting. We spontaneously had to think of creamy cranachan, in which the raspberries were replaced by currants and the surface was dusted with nutmeg. When water is added, small explosions occur, as when igniting matches. The currants remain, supplemented by other fruit citrus fruits, lemon drops ('Opal Fruits'). Undiluted, it has a slight smoke trail and an aftertaste of cough medicine. With water it is gentle and pleasant, with fruity freshness. Extremely drinkable!
