Tasting note: Built at the highest point in Glasgow on the banks of the Forth & Clyde Canal, closed in 2010 then demolished a year later. Port Dundas starts life as a light and sweet distillate with long barrel ageing slowly adding body and depth. The pretty deep gold colour is followed by a bouquet in turns volatile, peppery then soft and medium sweet. 2-3 minutes settles the focus on vanilla wafer, stewed peaches and cream, cinnamon and gobstopper, resembling a blend of pot and column distilled rums. Taste-wise, this is Bourbonesque with a rush of vanilla sponge, dates and Monte Carlo tea biscuits, the oak adding fine astringency. Not overly sweet, so extra points for balance. Caramel fudge and vanilla linger with the spices. A very satisfying grain that's beginning to throw off its youth. 156 bottles. 55.4% Alc./Vol.Non chill filtered.

Notes from the bottlers... Vanilla wafers & oak, hazelnut praline and Sweet baking spices.
