This whisky declares itself “Scotch with a History” and it is not wrong, with the brand first produced way back in 1835.
After over 180 years of being on the market, you would expect this dram to have picked up a few fans. This is indeed the case, with the bottling enjoying a cult following in Belgium and Argentina.
The whisky was first named after smugglers who covertly plied their trade around the Highlands and Islands.
The spirit itself is simple stuff, offering flavours of cereal sweetness, malt, vanilla, toffee, honey, apples and slight oak.
An easy drinking blend that would do well in cocktails.
