If you take the tram from the Edinburgh airport to the heart of the Scottish capital, you will pass this huge distillery without realizing it. The chance that you notice it is small, because you’ll probably be looking out the other window, checking out the famous Murray Field Stadium. Moreover, the distillery is not open to the public (believe me, I tried). This 28 years old North British was bottled by Jop Boer, a Dutch indie, under his banner of 3006 Whisky. It is a former brandy cask! The nose starts rather neutral, but if you give it some time, it opens up nicely, offering vanilla, lemongrass, young apricots and even some light brown sugar. This is quite pleasant. It is oily and soft on the palate, nicely sweet on vanilla and mandarin from a can. I even get some mango and jelly beans. Turns candy-like without disturbing. From the second sip forward, I even start to like it very much! The finish is short and slightly bitter, as if biting down on the pith of a pink grapefruit. I have learned to approach grain whisky with an open mind. Try this without any expectations and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
