Colour: Light Gold.
Body: Medium bodied and well balanced.
Nose: Sandal and cedar wood fuse with the sweetness of buttercream and fresh vanilla. A little water opens-up the Highland aroma, adding dark treacle and fresh Scottish gooseberries.
Palate: A well-balanced combination of the sweetness of malt and the aridity of salt. Traces of gooseberry and a hint of lime complete this fine example of Highland Malt.Finish: A pleasantly smooth, lengthily, mouth filling aftertaste.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Caramelized peanut, confectionery and freshly cut wood fill the nose. Caramelized peaches and sea salt on the palate are rich and deep, followed by spiced wood and pale tobacco. The texture is piquant and tingling. (Apr 2014)
Mcclellands Highland Smalt 750ML
|The Highlands of Scotland are moving and unforgettable, carved through the ages from one of the world’s oldest mountain ranges.
When the poet wrote ‘Scotland thy beauty is wild and majestic’ he was thinking of the Highlands. The north and west of the country is the last wilderness in Europe, a land of rugged mountains, lakes and fast-flowing rivers, forests and castles.
While Highland malts are not as peaty in comparison to Islay, the slightest hint of smoke can often be detected on the nose. Home of the Scottish clans and full of romance and story, the malts made here capture the spirit of the place - wild flowers, the scents of moorland, fresh heather, and the sappy flavours of pine forests.
