Creamy light oak at first, with soft whisky aromas. Juicy citrus fruit emerges along with a floral note.
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.
Creamy on the swallow, then bittersweet, dry and oaky with a touch of whisky and a gentle, tingling warmth.
A quaffable beer for the strength with oak successfully playing second fiddle.
By Glenn Payne
Slightly spiced aroma (cinnamon?) with anticipated aroma of whisky.
Reminiscent of cask strength whisky diluted with a drip or two of water.
Very clean, distinctive archetypal Highland balance.
Light golden and great head. Reminds the drinker of how much beer and whisky have in common.
