This is a Douglas Laing blended release made from a variety of lowland expressions.
Honey, peaches, pears, vanilla, waxy fruits.
Thin, mild heat, vanilla, pears, pepper, waxy fruits, mild smoke. Reminds me of a weaker Great Kings Street from Compass Box, almost.
Short, thin, hot, fruity pears. Faint lime, waxy fruits.
Not bad but too hot in the finish for what it is. Other than the heat, this is really enjoyable, mustache and all.
