Lindores Abbey Single Malt MCDXCIV 70cl

Over 500 years ago, and you'd like some whisky. What do you do? If you're King James IV, what you do is commission Brother John Cor of Lindores Abbey in Fife to make you some aqua vitae with eight bolls of malt. That is in fact what happened, and it is now officially recognised as the first recorded distillation of Scotch whisky. Smell: Really fruity. Orange. Peach. Nectarines. Ripe apples. Lemon. There's also a pleasant malty note. Plenty of honey and a gentle touch of ginger. Total lack of spirit heat - impressive for a three and a half year old. Taste: Still fruity. Orange especially. That peach note again, too. The malty note has become biscuity. Reminds me of Hobnobs dipped in honey! After a while in the glass some sherry notes came through. Currants and sultanas especially. Wee touch of peppery heat at the back of the tongue. Nice oiliness to the mouth feel.
