On the nose, hit croissant, toffee, coffee, marzipan, and cherry. The palette is peach, date, burnt sugar, butter, and saline peat. The finish is marzipan and unsweetened cocoa powder with candied dried fruit. — 3 years ago

Caorunn is crafted in a whisky distillery – Scotland’s Speyside’s Balmenach – one of the first distilleries to be licensed in the production of Scotch whisky in 1824.
Caorunn has 11 botanicals. The main five Celtic ingredients – rowan berry, bog myrtle, heather, coul blush apple and dandelion leaf. These five main botanicals enhance the remaining six traditional botanicals. This special mix of botanicals results in a crisp well balanced dry gin. Although there are hints of citrus, apple, spice and juniper... the flavors are subtle and smooth. For enjoyable G&T options serve with a garnish of choice. Excellent! — 2 years ago
Firstly, merry Christmas to all!
Noticing that label variations exist for the Singleton 12, I became curious for why this is the case. Turns out Singleton is a brand (bottler?) that represents multiple distilleries. This is from Glen Ord at the edge of Black Isle peninsula in the Scottish Highlands.
To be frank, I've never been one to bat an eye when approached with Singleton - always seems to be the choice pour at bars in every corner of the world. Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised by this offering - orange, honey, and caramel on the nose. The palate is wood and spice driven with a subtle minerally and gingery finish. I liked it. Smooth and easy to drink. — 4 years ago
