It's all the Ss, as we simply and seductively sip some superb samples! A mix of Scottish and European drams, with a splash of mystery new make thrown in!

Smells
Cat piss / fur lick from yesterday's pub, dusty, cherries & Nesquik Chocolate, an old spider that lives in the grapes, vacuuming behind the sofa.
Tastes
Peaty, malty. Calmac. Madras curry. Old leather briefcase, a bowlful of chalkdust, wearing in incompatible new boots, hollow, harsh, Cherry Bakewell (burnt).
