One of Diageo's 2015 special releases. This is such an underrated distillery, as always, shame it's closed. The whisky is a beautiful colour, has incredible legs in the glass, and has a great mouthfeel. On the tongue it's sensuous and sweet sour, Rosebank-like rhubarb and custard vies with citric grapefruit and lemon. Then a slightly smoky, white grape finish (reminds me of Penderyn).


I like this a lot.
