One of our number takes as northside as we go down to Leith for a blind tasting of recent offerings from Cadenhead's, as well as a cheeky supermarket-own-bottling thrown in to test us!
Biscuits. Citrus bathroom cleaner. Chicken korma. Old clothes and moth balls.
Mint, menthol. Big floral pink flowers off a succulent tree (Thailand massage parlour?). Licorice. Mega floral. Spiced rum. Hint of zing. Normal. Salty and spicy.
| A couple of 'Glenlivets' from Cadenhead's - not The Glenlivet, mind (4 photos)
Woody spice - short. Pink peppercorns. Fancy syrup.
Soft fade. Really great - full of unusual flavours.
