Malty full bodied character with bright flavoury notes and hints of cast oakiness. A bracing highlander's cup of tea.
The primary sociological structure in old Scotland was the 'Clan'. The roots of the system are very ancient, stretching back into Scotland's Celtic past. The country had been occupied by many different people : Britons, Romans, Angles and Vikings, but two races came to dominate: the Picts in the north and east who divided their territory into 7 petty kingdoms and the west was to the Scots. Originating as an Irish tribe, the Scots migrated from Ulster in the 6th century. The kingdoms of the Scots and the Picts were eventually united by Kenneth MacAlpin in the mid 800's. In all these hardships came a sturdy drink that warms the Celtic spirit and the mind.
