This bottle was produced at Ailsa Bay Distillery, and has previously been marketed as Dalrymple. Since William Grant & Sons does not permit independent bottlings to be released under these brand names, we have named this release Paddy’s Milestone as a geographical reference.
Although it also has to be labelled as a blend, we can assure you that it is in fact a tea-spooned single malt. We wish you a wonderful time exploring this rare Lowland whisky.
Fruity is the keyword here; Apricots’, peaches, ripe Mago’s and vanilla a combined with a wee scent of fresh cut grass, green apples an eucalyptus. This is lowland whisky in its purest form!
The before mentioned savors are once again eminent; Apricots’, peaches fresh cut grass, green apples and some nutmeg. A creamy mouthfeel and butterscotch candy.
A mildly and smooth finish that brings new savors of pear drops to the foreground and some fresh lemony zest.
Balance and Complexity;
Well balanced in both nosing and tasting. No off notes and it does have that grassy lowland style. The complexity is in the eucalyptus and nutmeg savors, very tasty!
An honest dram this is. This a bargain it tastes exactly as a suburb lowlander should be. This all the way the lowlands are known for; a fresh and exciting dram well worth the purchase. A true BFYB (Bang For Your Buck) whisky.
