——

Distiller: Glenallachie

Bottler: Hepburn’s Choice (KL)

——

Nose: Stewed fruits, dehydrated cherries, snickers bar, sweet fruit, stewed syrupy sweet

Taste: Medium richness, faint heat, sweet syrupy, raspberry, plum, fig, sweet syrupy dole fruit, dark cocoa and peanut butter. Faint sulfur

Finish: Short, sweet and complex. Delicious oak, snickers bar, syrupy fruitiness. Some faint oaky bitterness.

Overall: I really like this but the finish is a hair short. Nose is obscene though. In a good way. Oh man. Palate good too, finish short though.

Thanks for reading!
