Once a hotbed of illicit distilling throughout the 18th and 19th century, the Braes of Glenlivet is full of wonder, beauty, and distillery 113. A fully-automated workhorse distillery built in 1972 by Seagram, distillery 113 shares an equal highest elevation record in Scotland, making for a light, fun, floral and fascinating malt. Rarely seen as a single malt, let alone as a single cask release, don’t miss out on our first Malt of the Month for 2021!
The initial nose suggested to us the warmth of ginger nut biscuits dunked into chai tea. These soft spicy qualities were further underpinned by hot cross buns, dry cereals, brown toast with butter and some vibrant notes of golden syrup and citrus flowers. Reduction brought custard creams, sweetened herbal teas, hyacinths and honeysuckle. The neat palate was rich with barley sugars, orange pith, lime cordial and malty red ale notes. Wee background touches of dried tarragon, chalk and travel sweets popped out too. Water offered up ripe yellow fruits, custard made with young dessert wines, runny honey, camphor and aromatic new leather.
