"a shot fired among conifers. this was the first distillery to be granted a royal warrant (by william iv), and is found on the cawdor estate near nairn. it is only bottled by its proprietor in small quantities. in crow, ted hughes writes about "the after-rale of a shot fired among conifers in rainy twilight" this captures it. the first nose is vaguely of gun-smoke (with some liquorice), and with water this becomes the steely smell of shot-gun barrels. the flavour is sweet overall but with attractive acidity and good balance of primary tastes. unusual and interesting. go easy on the water." the original price for this bottle in 1997 was £47.
