  1. John Barleycorn did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Coppery rose
    Flavour: Spicy & dry

    We encountered a totally magnificent nose – plentiful plum
    jam, candy floss, toffee crisp, fudge, jammy dodgers and port wine, but with
    deeper layers of tobacco, liquorice and Eastern spices. The palate had slightly
    burnt damson jam, fruity toffee, fruit chutney and fig rolls – teasingly
    tannic, mildly minerally and vaguely sulphury, but acceptably so. The reduced
    nose uncovered ripe watermelon, fruit pastilles, wine gums, icing sugar, sweet
    sultanas and blackcurrant yoghurt. Adding water transformed the palate into a
    complete joy – strawberry toffees, Astro Belts, fruity tobacco – unusual and
    highly enjoyable. The distillery is very near the West Highland Way (south
    end).

    Drinking Tip: A dram for chatting up strawberry blondes

  2. Sonett scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Fantastic for its age. I wish I could have tried it at the age of 20. Less peppery and more mature would have made this a real masterpiece.
    • Nose
      Intense sweet and fruity nose with a lot of influences from the port cask. the stong alcohol comes dominant with a peppery nose
    • Taste
      Taste is really a mouthful. First the sweet fruits followed by peppery tones but not as much as the ABV made you to expect.
    • Finish
      Long finish with the mild peppery tones in combination with a pleasant sweet fruity ending
