Duncan Taylor have been given the green light to build their distillery by the planners in Huntly. It appears that there is only one hurdle left before building begins in the old creamer buildings.

"unchill-filtered whisky as a dram for those who like their meat on the bone and crust on their bread."
The man was a genius! Beats my its like the difference between full fat milk and semi-skimmed hands down!
Was just in a bar that claimed to have a decent whisky list - note the term claimed! So i picked a dram that I haven't had for a while, namely Glenmorangie and in this case the 18 year old. I believe this bottling is no longer available in the new wine bottle Glenmorangie range - not that I am that bothered after trying this was this. I must point out that this was tried in a hotel bar this evening that makes me want to have a rant about how shite hotel bars can be -but I will save that for another day! - so it was served in a big as tumbler so maybe I am being unfair on it. Anyway here goes!
Nose: Light soft and creamy but nothing jumping out at all. Some vanilla and a touch of bourbon biscuits.
Taste: Tastes a little bit watery, touch of typical pear drops but soft and quite a lot of vanilla.
Finish: Short - very short! Slightly musty - infact stale custard creams!
Comment: Not a huge fan of this could have been a good dram if it had some balls about it - very much a featherweight. Nothing really wrong but yet nothing really right!
