    SMWS notes: Cod-liver oil and blackcurrants



    Cask No.
    92.10




    Before it was converted, this distillery at Montrose was a
    brewery; upon conversion in 1957 it combined patent with malt stills to
    produce a well known blend called ""Sandy Macnab's"". It is now largely
    demolished and its product is uncommon. This is a good example. Silvery
    gold in colour (a much refilled sherry butt?), the nose is rich but
    closed, initially presenting a complex of cooked fruit with allspice and
    cloves, a hint of treacle, farm molasses, sugar-beet pulp and jaggery
    (a coarse sugar made from palm sap). Water brings out polish and
    cod-liver oil, with forest fruits, white peaches and a hedgerow melange.
    The unreduced flavour is of fresh or stewed blackcurrants; with water
    this ""sweet-yet-dry"" theme continues; at once fruity and oily (but, we
    assure you, no fish!); a bright and interesting example that is totally
    different to the preceding casks.
