Glenshiel 10 year old Single Malt Scotch whisky from an unnamed Highland distillery.
Matured exclusively in a first fill bourbon barrel imparting lashings of vanilla, toffee and coconut.
Give this one a little time to develop in the glass and you’ll be rewarded with the aromas of apple crumble and thick custard mingling with soft spices.
A light oiliness on the palate adds weight and soft dusty oak spice balances the sweeter elements.
Floral with juicy apple skins, toffee and spice. With a little time the nose becomes more open with vanilla, coconut and toffee notes and tinned peaches in the background. A dash of water softens the nose and delivers a delicious home cooked apple crumble with a hint of chocolate, doused in custard. A little dusty oak from the first fill bourbon barrel.
The palate follows through on the nose and adds some gently malty notes and oak spice. The light oiliness from the distillate combines beautifully with the vanilla from the cask to deliver lush custard notes. A touch of heather, gentle spices and dash of cappuccino balance the sweetness perfectly. A dash of water brings out more juicy fruit, vanilla and coconut. Easy to drink yet so much to explore.

A medium length finish that moves from spicy to juicy and back again. A touch of heather adds a pleasant dryness at the very end.
