Reviews and Ratings

Jim McEwan created this bottling especially for Vintages. It is an expression you will not be able to get anywhere else. This special bottling delivers notes of barley, biscuits, pear and vanilla. Great velvety texture and mouth filling with sweet barley, caramel. The slightest oxidative quality confirmed that Jim used sherry casks (Palo Cortado, no less...) to finish this malt. I feel like McEwan knows exactly what I like in a malt. Go to an older Kurt Elling recording, Flirting with Twilight and play Kurt’s version of Moonlight Serenade with this one.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
