| SSWC review 85a
Vanilla, Lady Marmalady, cloves and trousers, allspice, freshly baked bread, musty drawrs, grassy, fresh. Stay Fresh / Odour Eater socks, Cif.
Breakfast whisky. Rubbery, melon-y-ness, subtle, Gin-y (not Phil's mum), nettle-ette, figgy-plum liquor. And What I go to School For (Busted). And Crunch Creams. Of course.
| Scotland's highest distillery? Dalwhinnie might argue... (2 photos)
Surprisingly long with cremola, barley and fudge and vanilla farts.
Subtle, very drinkable... Hard to judge but goes down well.
