My tasting notes:

  • Appearance Australian Muscat (11/20) oily, beaded tears and large legs.
  • Nose Red fruits also yeasty/beery too, fireball gobstoppers, cherry lips and strawberry laces, cinnamon, plum sauce, tannic oak wood, cardamom and curry leaf
  • Taste Warming, woodland berry jam on toasted rye bread, a lot less spicy than the nose suggests, more fizzy tannins, cherry cola flavoured chewing tobacco, raisins, cloves
  • Finish Medium, woody and sweet with ginger and soft red fruits
  • Overall The STR wine barrique has imparted plenty of colour and lots of sweet red fruit flavours and herbal nature into Lindores Abbey distillate here.

Score 81/100
