Pugnacious head puffs it’s billowy chest. Egg white and and foamy, with a tea colored translucence. Wave top lacing. Orange blossom and mango with grapevine and toast smells leads to sweet barley malt and tangerine. The mango is strong in the mouth, but not sweet. Tons of lemon oil, lime peel, and sweet grapefruit from the hops come out, but still it shows restraint (literally the earmark of every beer style these folks make) and balance. It is fruity, but never steers far from the earthy realm of beer. Opening and closing within the canon, and doing so with an ingredient far from its shores. Great work! Great Scot! .

Straw color. Aromas of elegant smoke, toasted nuts, and marzipan. Wildflower honey, almonds, and cereal malts rush forward on the palate. Long finish. Very nice 10 year SM! — 8 days ago

In the JW lineup, this is now my entry point. I've always found the Red a little harsh (I enjoy everything neat), and maybe it's my advancing age, while I used to really like Black but now think it's too smokey. Palate evolution I guess...
Mellow peat, perfect barrel char, light honey, distant campfire smoke. Perfect just by itself and a cold whiskey stone. — a month ago
