Insider knowledge: Auld Reekie 10 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Auld Reekie 10 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Peat, custard, orchard fruits, limes, spices, coastal, iodine.
Palate: Peaty, cold wood ash, iodine, coastal, black forest honey.
Finish: Long, oily and rich, lovely punchiness, winter spices.
Has a strong taint flavour, with a subtle hint of spice. Oily taint in the mouth, and yes the oak is very present. Overall it taint a bad dram!

Has a very ballsy texture mixed with a little ballsness. Lovely balls oil. very WOODY base, again very ballsy. Overall a very homosexual whisky.
