Vince's Top Picks January 2020
Our director, Vince, will give his opinion on most things, if asked (and sometimes even when nibdae's asked him!)...
Read on to see what has moved him to comment this month!
In an Islay enthusiast's dream the clean, iodine-rich aromas of a ship's medicine chest soar high above the ashy embers of a peat fire. The texture is smooth, the taste unexpectedly sweet, intense and very smoky with light acidity and a sprinkle of sea-salt. The finish is long, lightly drying and smoky.
Vanilla and pear with soft spices on the nose. Refreshing nectarine with tropical fruit, with suble roasted coffee, clove and ginger. A memorable finish of sultanas and black toffee.
Like spreading apricot jam on toasted brioche! Elegant and luxurious.
Crisp apple with sweet fragrant pear on the nose. The palate is creamy vanilla, creme brulee with toasted cedar wood and warming paprika. Long floral smoke on the finish, perfectly offset by notes of fresh fruit.
