"One of the first aromas that stands out is wool--have the sheep that roam Scotland somehow gotten into the warehouses and gone for a quick dip? Unlikely. Other flavors found are bright lemon zest, breakfast tea and vanilla. The malt might be a bit too plain Jane for those that like to take a walk on the wild side. "
