Yet another new distillery for me, just a wee dram from Inverleven, near Dumbarton. It was Mothballed in ’91 and eventually demolished in 2006. The stills went to Bruichladdich, apparently to be used for Port Charlotte.
Single malts are fairly rare, there are a few independent bottlings around from G+M, SMWS etc.
The nose is pleasing with red apples, juicy barley, toffee and young spirit. Not sophisticated but pretty characterful.
Soft summer fruit, oak, apple pie and creme caramel.
The finish let’s it down a bit, it’s a bit on the acidic side.
A perfectly decent dram, a great one for mixing or drinking long with ice on a hot day.
