COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

The result of this maturation is a smooth, full-bodied, dark ruby ale with warm roast malt flavours complemented by hints of vanilla. Limited run - each bottle is numbered.

Bottled@chriso. Very deep amber colour with small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, mild alcohol and some slight toffeeish notes. Flavour is brown sugar, fruits, some wooden notes as well as mild alcohol. Not all too much whisky in it, just a very slight sweet note.

Holmen1 (2791) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2012
0,5 flaske (nr. 297 av 1320), delt med Willy: meget lovende aroma og utseende, men smaken blir for tynn selv om førsteinntrykket er godt. En typisk skotsk ale i maltprofilen og lite humlet. Lagret på gamle whiskyfat brukt til single malts hos Loch lomond Distillery, uten at det gjorde den store susen.

Bottle from The Pot Still. Dark brown colour, not much head. Sweaty sock aroma. Sweet resin whiskey aroma sour aftertaste. This is a minger.

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2012
Pours a rather unexpected dark tan colour, but not as dark as you would expect. Nose has a strong, almost super lager tang of alcohol to it. Taste confirms this with a lot of burn fro the booze as the body, although toffee sweet is quite thin. Not a great deal of whisky character beyond the sweetness of the malt I.e smacks of a rather mediocre lowland malt. Not bad, but needs more body, or longer in the cask. Maybe a more complex whisky might do the trick.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2012
In bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a lacy light tan head. Aroma of acetone, green apples, apple bonbons, starfruit, caramel and chocolate. Similar flavours with a little Weetabix malt also. Mild carbonation, and an oily mouth-feel. Alcohol lingers, quite sweet and just a little thin too.
