Geur:
Slightly sweet, some tropical fruits, yellow apples, dried apricots, fruit acid drops, berry marmalade, vanilla fudge, hint of malt, damp oak, light minerality on the background
Smaak:
Sweet, mild spices (cinnamon), canned peaches, dark berry jam, toffee, milk chocolate, light oak
Afdronk:
Sweetish, slightly nutty, caramelized pears, oat cookies, hint of oak
Conclusie:
Very nice and balanced NAS from Glen Scotia, definitely better than many entry-level malts with age statement. Light, easy going, with some tropical motives. Quite simple and you shouldn’t try to find any complexity in it but often this is an advantage, isn’t it?

19-4-2019
Geur:
Light, fruity (tropical fruit caramel candies), dried apples and sultanas, strawberry jam, honey notes, hint of barley, a bit of vanilla, mineral and woody notes on the background. Water opens beautiful sherry notes and intensifies wood.
Smaak:
Sweet, slightly spicy (ginger and some intense “winter” spices like clove and cardamom), blackcurrant jam, chocolate, a lot of oranges, gentle oak
Afdronk:
Short, a bit sweet, different berries, blackcurrant leaves, creamy notes, mild oak
Conclusie:
Very nice malt despite it’s NAS. Full-bodies, well balances, pleasant on every tasting stage. It lacks complexity but it’s very drinkable and cask strength in addition. Good choice to enjoy without high expectations. Quite pricey though.

Geur:
Soft smoke, light fruitiness (mainly yellow apples), some red berries, lemon pie, toffee, hint of vanilla, wet chalk on the background. Water releases sweet caramel and earthy notes with touch of grilled bacon. Later come very light farmy notes.
Smaak:
Sweet, ashy, a bit spicy (ginger and white pepper), currant jam. Dilution fades down the smoke and opens orchard fruity notes along with salty coastal touch and some minerality. Very gentle touch of oak at the end.
Afdronk:
Long, somewhat salty, nuts and leather tones, some berry marmalade, cold ashes, fading sweetness.
Conclusie:
Very pleasant blended malt, vivid and intense, smoky but not too much. Nice fruity notes adjoin with gentle minerality producing together very good balance. Quite pricey but definitely worth tasting.

Langside Distillers - Hepburn's Choice
7.7 (1)
Geproefd op:
13-4-2019
Geur:
Slightly creamy, yeast, some fusel oil, pear mash, porridge, butter shortbreads, hint of vanilla, fudge
Smaak:
Quite rough, strong alcohol influence, slightly spicy (ginger, cardamom), cooked vegetables, malted barley, porridge, muesli, orchard berry jam, some minerality, hint of oak
Afdronk:
Short, alcohol, apple seeds, yeast, malt, salty notes, some bitterness
Conclusie:
Very basic and immature single malt. Young nose with yeast and fusel oil, rough unbalanced taste and some bitterness in the aftertaste. Interesting to try but definitely not for buying a full bottle.
