Water source Allt a Mhullin

Distilled in Winter 1996 and bottled Spring 2008 by Douglas Laing & Co.

Tasting notes :-

Massively spiced and gingery on the nose - softning as it warms to a more caramelised, sweet nature.

With spicy tang on the palate, detect also syrupy, gristy and fruity influences - maybe even some mocha, all running to a barley, spiced, coffee style and lightly mentholated finish. (F).
