In toothpick inserted toothpicks
The distillery was founded in 1819 by the Duke of Sutherland-the same one who expelled 15,000 souls from his land to make room for sheep-but since 1967/68 a new distillery has been built next door and has been given its original name, it is named after the neighboring village. As a result, it was closed seven years (until 1975), then seven years in operation, before it was finally shut down. This barrel has given its contents a strangely green-golden color. The first scent is reminiscent of powdered milk, with traces of leather and mothballs, - overall slightly nose-drying and slightly smoky. The latter is easily medicated, fresh and minty, such as the mouthwash at the dentist or rather, as in mouthwash pickled toothpicks. Nature deliciously sweet and smoky. Water brings out the medical notes and leaves mouth rinse in the aftertaste. Fresh and invigorating.
