Murray McDavid – Benchmark – Glen Scotia 1991

In a recent Twitter Tasting I had the chance to make some notes on this Glen Scotia from Murray McDavid that has spent its last remaining year in a cask from Burgundy. 

That cask finish on it was clearly present and gave it to me a bit herbal almost woody feel to it.

It was a balanced dram with notes as light grassy, citrus, salted butter, rye bread, cherry blossom, fennel, old book store, spices, fruit, woodpolish, HP sauce, heather honey and highly concentrated oranges. There is also some sweetness, vanilla and a hint of liquerish. 

Herbal notes like thyme, lavender and rosemary. Red apple, banana, mint, plums and raisins. Middle length sweet finish, and scoring me a 7/10 due to the high herbal like feel to it.
