From the remote glens of Speyside. Accords taken from all aspects of whisky production – opens fresh and fruity, releases oak in the heart, and finishes with rich, vanillic wood reminiscent of The Glenlivet 18. A remarkable exploration of sweet, malty tones, Spirit of the Glen evokes the unique comfort of a rural distillery. Pear leaf evokes the cool sweetness of the windblown grasses surrounding the liquor structure. Chamomile marks the first, warm-cool embrace of our step into the foyer of this remarkable makery. A bittersweet, floral aromatic, chamomile, enrobes us and we slowly begin to discern both the more solid and fugitive aspects of this scent. Oak is a hardwood that is dense yet somehow invisible, an anchor we sense, subtly. Hay and malt illustrate the steamy, fragrant air of this place, a dewy, dank, honeyed atmos. Coal shades the darker colors of this stone hewn interior, the dim chinks on the walls where fragrance collects and matures. Woody notes subtly illustrate the bent arrows of wood, bunched together, that contain all this liquid, and absorb the delicious corrosive fluids without complaint, the tangy, mouthwatering freshness of white wine an expression of spirit infused wood. As smooth and satisfying, bitter yet sweet, Spirit of the Glen is a deeply satisfying, uniquely gourmand comfort.
