Single grain time with a 29 year old Strathclyde drawn from a 2nd fill ex-bourbon barrel. Old & Dignified profile.
Nose: An afternoon in the Bake Off tent. Buttered toast, pastries, croissants and freshly baked turnovers are joined by some homemade fizzy lemonade and hazelnut biscuits. Water adds some dusty aromas and a touch of varnish and glue.
Taste: Fresh wood and biscuits. Cut wood planks, balsa and resin merge nicely with gingernut biscuits and cinnamon spicing. The addition of water enhances the nuttiness – hazelnuts and adds vanilla, varnish and glue.
Finish: Super long, quite woody and with vanilla and ginger.
A very straight-forward, but no less tasty for it Strathclyde. Strongly woody, but offering good balance between bakery notes and flavours and cask spicing.
But don't take our word for it..
