80
Nose
Creamy light oak at first, with soft whisky aromas. Juicy citrus fruit emerges along with a floral note.
Palate
Fairly light and zesty, with orange flavours from the hops sitting on top of smooth, sticky malt. The oak is tart and drying but this is generally a sweet beer with plumlike fruit also in evidence, along with a gentle warmth.
Finish
Creamy on the swallow, then bittersweet, dry and oaky with a touch of whisky and a gentle, tingling warmth.
Comment
A quaffable beer for the strength with oak successfully playing second fiddle.

By Glenn Payne

91
Nose
Slightly spiced aroma (cinnamon?) with anticipated aroma of whisky.
Palate
Reminiscent of cask strength whisky diluted with a drip or two of water.
Finish
Very clean, distinctive archetypal Highland balance.
Comment
Light golden and great head. Reminds the drinker of how much beer and whisky have in common.
