Colour: Teak brown
The intense nose had treacle toffee, liquorice and rich wood; Christmas cake and rum soaked raisins. An earthiness emerged from the richness with hessian, smoke and diesel. The full-bodied palate was creamyand oily with burnt raisins and nut oil, progressing to butterscotch and Christmas cake. On the nose, water intensified the buttery/smokey characters as buttered burnt toast, smoked sausage and almonds appeared with dates and sultanas. The reduced palate became pain au raisin, Oloroso and brioche with wood smoke and salted butter. This distillery looks more like a townhouse, and is reputed to be haunted by a previous owner who drowned himself in Campbeltown loch.
