  1. John Barleycorn scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Seville orange marmalade 
    Flavour: Deep, rich & dried fruits

    Soft, rich and creamy, the nose displayed buttery toffee
    with Brazil nuts and Macadamias, plums, marmalade on toast, liquorice, treacle
    pudding and rum and raisin ice cream. The unreduced palate was massive, intense
    and vibrant with plentiful heat, treacle toffee,  orange zest, dates, figs, raisins and plums -
    quite Christmassy. The reduced nose, conveying chocolate, rum, caramel and
    molasses (and a tiny trace of struck match) seemed almost Jamaican. It remained
    full on the palate - we identified dark chocolate truffles dusted in cocoa,
    candied oranges, treacle, liquorice, and a pleasant, long-lasting ginger and
    pepper heat. From Tain’s one and only distillery.

    Drinking Tip: A perfect winter warmer - or after dinner with
    coffee
