McNeillR (1325) - SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 Cherry wine red, clear but heavy looking - wee thin bubbly skin. Sticky sherry apple action - green and chewy nose. Vibrant still, eased out on the cask action probably muddled a bit on actual distilled bite. Steamy malt and shining booze on the finish. Doing well.

Bottle 309 from the Garvie Cave, Beers Of My Youth Tasting
