Nose
Almonds, marzipan at first. This needs time to open and move away from the initial cardboard notes but when it does, you get black banana, white truffle and leather.
Palate
Minerality...this could be made of granite! Sandlewood, a hint of oak spice, nutmeg and ginger.
Finish
Leather (vintage) with waxed jackets, wet hay and something to do with horses.
Comment
The whisky for a mason; lots of structure, stone and hard work.

Nose
Poached pears with saffron, hints of fudge. Gin like botanical notes like fresh coriander. Solventnotes that reminded me of hot paper from a photocopier. Thin and tight.
Palate
It lacked body and I struggled to find flavour. Cooling like watered down mint, then an odd spicy dryness.
Finish
Crisp, slight and short.
Comment
Quite a shadowy spirit.

Less is Mhor
Simple recipes that let the quality ingredients shine through are at the heart of Glengoyne's food partnership with Monachyle Mhor chef Tom Lewis,as Kate Portman discovers.
