Tweeddale Grain of Truth, 46%

Price: $55 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Toasted coconut, custard cream biscuits, vanilla, freshly peeled banana skins, and ice cream wafers make this an enticing olfactory prospect. Vanilla, lemon, cream, and shortbread, this puffs out beautifully with a tug of pepper, always in balance, before relaxing into lemon meringue pie territory, with those sweet lemons persisting into the finish. A mellow, well-balanced offering, but you'll know the truth when you taste it.
