Bottled at 46% the Hielan is composed of a mix of Ex-Bourbon & Ex-Sherry Casks. The name is a "a heartfelt tip of the hat to the extraordinary Forgue distillery, Glendronach’s spiritual home in the Highlands and one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries." We're not entirely sure what that means, but we'll take it as is. Looking forward to sampling it and providing our own tasting note.

Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: malty, a touch of barnyard and wet hay; raisins and waxy chocolates; Fig Newtons, juicy orange and Bananas Foster.

Palate: big, rich, nutty and fruity; loads of caramel, more malt and wet hay; Sunrype boxed raisins and Glosset Raisins; more Fig Newtons, juicy orange and cooked banana; soft new leather and a touch of spice.

Finish: medium in length and light; leather, dark fruits and spice last the longest.

Comment: surprisingly pleasant and complex for just 8 years... not mind blowing, but very good for 8 years of age! 

Distiller's Tasting Note:

Nose: Rounded waves of orange blossom and a citrus twist flow over buttery, golden sultanas, sundried raisins and ripe yellow plums, all dusted with a touch of vanilla.

Palate: Crisp, vibrant oak spices warm soaked sultanas, apricot jam and gingerbread; all rounded by delicate hints of butterscotch, cocoa and toasted almonds.

Finish: Classic sherry overtones with a contrasting crisp dimension demonstrate the complexity of the traditional Highland character.
