Tasting Notes by tjb
This particular expression from Strathmill Distillery was matured in 1st fill ex bourbon barrels. Distilled 1999, bottled 2013. It was independently bottle by G&M (Gordon & MacPhail).
Straw gold in the glass, NCF. The nose is sweet vanilla, almonds and lemon. The palate is peppery initially with big sweet lemon (not sharp), milk chocolate followed by stewed plums and oak.
The finish is short - medium and I think the nose is the best element and over sells the flavour slightly. That being said, it is a good all rounder and is a grower. Each time I pour a glass I enjoy it a little more.
