COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big and delicious for your ’perty mouth. Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts. A bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark cherries. It’s a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

I don’t really like scotch so not really liking this shouldn’t have been a huge surprise.

Pours semi thick with a nice malty colored head. Aroma of a caramelized scotch. The flavor explosion is amazing. Like a scotch laced cinnamon bun minus the icing. This is a sipping beer!

330ml bottle from Glug, Grainger Market Newcastle. Poured into an English half pint. Lustrous deep red with a firm lasting off-white head. Whiskey and vanilla aroma. Aromas are present in the flavour, with caramel, sweet cherry and dried fruit. Warming alcohol. Full bodied, long chewy finish. Simply delicious.

swannycellars (43) - Swanbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2015
Deep brown colour with small off white head. Immediate aroma of bourbon and vanilla which gives way to chocolate and raisin. Smooth mouthfeel with a light bourbon flavour, chocolate in the mid palate before dark dried fruit and light alcohol warmth. Quite sweet but well balanced with a just present earthy bitterness. Been a few years since I tried this and I’m very impressed. Great winter warmer.

Draught at KØ15. Really good vanilla aroma. Cloudy chestnut colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is sweet with a great vanilla note, bordering on coconut. A great beer.
