On 30th September I took part in a twitter tasting of Girvan Grain wares.
The Girvan distillery was built in 1963. It was the most advanced distillery in the world at the time. It continues to produce some excellent expressions.
New Make (at bottle strength)
Nose: Banana, nail varnish, Tutti Frutti sweets, Swizzels Mattlow Drumsticks
Palate: Light and fresh, creamy. Slightly empty suggesting bags of room for development over time. Light spice at the back of the mouth.
