Arthur Motley

Nose
Armagnac and cognac, prunes, and treacle cake.
Palate
Complex and long-lasting, with raisins, cherries and chocolate. European oak to the fore.
Finish
A sophisticated complex of flavour, with maple syrup, dark fruits and apples.
Comment
Lowlands just as aperitifs? Pah! A well constructed malt with varied wood flavour, although the prevalence of sherry flavours makes it atypical of the region.

Dave Broom

Nose
Deep and rich. Stewed fruit, raisins, molasses, roasted red pepper, violet. In time, there's resinous notes, tamarind concentrate, walnuts then cocoa. Malt way underneath.
Palate
Sweet and sour. Pomegranate/grenadine, dried orange peel thick berry juice. Lightly tannic, treacle, black fruits. Splits with water (don't dilute).
Finish
Tingling and thick.
Comment
As warm and welcoming as a real Glasgow kiss.
