Scotland's Oldest Independent Bottler
Never-Chill Filtered, Never-Coloured
Dispatched From Campbeltown
A vatting of two barrels of Strathclyde distilled in 1989.
Vanilla pods, earthy, mustiness, dunnage, cream cheese, butter scotch,
Hard boil sweets, biscuity, honey oats, nutty, caramac
Shortbread, vanilla ice cream, fruit pastil,
Nose: lemon tart, a hint of coffee, varnish, apple turnover.
Mouth: coconut yoghurt, custard, lukewarm, sweet and beautiful. Finish: superb coconut-y custard and lemon pie.
Nose – Obvious grain at first. Then fruit, a little austere but fresh and ripe. Gentle toffee, a cap from a cap gun, green apple and butter. It’s very gentle but quite reassuring. Flintier with water, old ice cubes – maybe cider ice lollies.
Body – Wood, cream and more apple (apple pie now). Lots of oil. More astringent with water.
Finish – Short but chocolatey, woods and some tannins later but the fruit is quickly spent.
