Scots Gold Red Label, 40%

Price: $14 Issue: Summer 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Lean and crisp grain notes on the nose, with Bramley apple peels, warm gentle spices, a little vanilla fudge, dry grasses, and custard cream biscuits. The flavors are sweet with creamy buttercream, vanilla, honey, banana, and a streak of mild spices, though it's not until the finish that the spices really steal the show, making for a more impactful tasting experience. Solid, decent, and worth a try.
