    Can be a good dram, but feels a bit too unrefined, and young, even at this age.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Sweet and reminiscent of dessert wines. (Sauternes, Tokaji 5-6 puttonyos) White grapes, peach, some creaminess. Thin custard note, and some oak.
    • Taste
      81 81
      White grapes hit your palate straight away. Grapes,... no more likely pomace eau du vie. Dry, hay? Oaky, bit raw, bitter towards the finish.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Surprisingly long, according to what I had expected after nosed it. Ends with sweet malty note. Pain au raisin.

    8 year old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    Arngibbon Distillery 19th Century – representing our Speyside Casks

    Arngibbon distillery operated in Kippen, Stirlingshire, for six short years in 1825 by John Morrison. Arngibbon itself was an estate of at least four farms and one country house, which was located southwest of Arnprior. At the time that the distillery was established there, the estate was the seat of the Forrester family. The distillery itself probably sat near a burn that flowed through the estate and fed into the River Forth.

    The Arngibbon on the nose has hints of custard creams, peaches, vanilla and a hint of heather moor. Malty oak and soft butter tablet to the palate with a malty oak vanilla and warming finish.
