INVERLEVEN - 1991 Gordon & MacPhail Lowland Malt RangeLowland Malt Whisky
Colour: Light straw.
Without water Nose: Soft fruits - peaches and strawberries. Subtle spices and a malty note. A rounding vanilla sweetness. Palate: Spicy with hints of cedar wood and white pepper. Some fragrant/floral flavours develop. Drying.
With water Nose: More citrus fruit aromas detectable with a slight waxy note. The sweet, vanilla element remains with a hint of roasted malt. Palate: Perfumed flavours with traces of liquorice and aniseed. A little fruitiness emerges.
Finish: Subtle hints of fruit and spices.
Cask Type: Refill Bourbon Barrels. Whisky Style: Described as a 'Highlander wearing the trews', perhaps more body and character than one would expect from a Lowland Malt but a pleasant, refreshing whisky.
