The founder of the distillery was Alexander Bonthrone who reputedly distilled until his death in 1890 (b.1798) making him the oldest distiller in Scotland!

Nose
Citruses, orange peel, sweet malt and touch of peat. It's nice, but a bit raw.

Taste
Sweet, spicy. Chocolate, pepper, toffee, honey and fruits with a soft floral line.

Finish
Not too long, sweet, especially caramel. Bit of wine finish feeling.

Comments
It's not a complex whisky, but it has an interesting taste in a reasonable price.
