  • Excerpt: The mouthfeel is creamy soft. The lemon remains bright on the tongue, but it is instantly followed up by a touch of coffee bean and earthiness. White cane sugar sweetens the dram. Lastly, the finish oozes with pipe tobacco.

  • Publication: Drinkhacker
  • Excerpt: There’s a unique minerality in this that you just don’t see often in single malt, but it comes across just a little too sharp, accented by clove and a bit of overbearing sweetness. Rock candy and a persistent, honeyed malt note barrel cross the palate into the lingering finish.

  • Excerpt: Spice forward starts always resolve into some fruity or sweeter flavors. I am really interested to see how Rathclogh will evolve in its new editions in time.
