Crabbie's 8 Year Old Whisky.
The first release of the revived John Crabbie whisky!
You will perhaps know Crabbie's better for their alcoholic ginger beer (only for grown-ups) however they were initially whisky bottlers and blenders when the company was founded.
Here we have an 8 year old Speyside single malt whisky from an un-named distillery.

A fresh, mid-weight aroma with a little heat, some hazelnut and fruit-and-nut bar. In time, a heavier floral element (day lily) and bread and butter pudding. The nuttiness continues, with more walnut being added. Water adds in green bracken and coconut, a hint of Sherry and spices. Firm, but approachable.PALATE
Quite forceful, with mixed nuts, nutmeg and some Szechuan and white pepper to start. It settles in the centre with (now brown) bracken, toasted wood, apple peelings and the light, dried fruits seen on the nose, and some dry, toasted wood. By the end, the spices have taken over. Water brings these elements together.FINISH
Ginger snaps and sweeter fruit.
