Ailein Mor (Robert Graham)
Ailein Mor is a single malt from an unnamed highland distillery and is bottled by Robert Graham, a small independent bottler and retailer with shops in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Cambridge and London.
This single malt has won awards in the past and I was really excited to give it a try and see what it was about.
Oh wow I wasn't expecting this its seriously drinkable stuff, massive fruits and fruit skin on the nose and just as much on the palate, this is a serious session dram and is easy to out away a good few glasses of it.
I have no idea what distillery this is, and wouldn't even hazard a guess but I do think you should grab a bottle and give it a try.
Thanks to Robert Graham for the official sample.
This is interesting, sweet dark fruit skins from plums, grapes, it's a little grassy at times and lots of juicy sweet sultanas and apricots in strong orange marmalade, some beeswax furniture polish and a touch of oak round of the nose on this dram.
Oh my this is seriously drinkable a real session dram, figs and plum skins, Seville orange marmalade and jellied orange peel, sweet galia melon, some sweet honey and beeswax, after a minute or two in the glass this grows some chocolate also fabulous stuff.
Sweet, fruit peels and galia melon.
