Kingsbarns

The introduction to Kingsbarns Lowland Distillery can be found here: https://lillion.wine/blogs/blog/kingsbarns-distillery-Introduction-Exquisite Flowers and Fruits Lowland-Style
Kingsbarns Dream To Dram 46%
These days, 46% of new factories are basic.
Smell: A lot of sweet cream, honeysuckle, maltose, biscuits, wheat porridge, more grassy than The Hive, and the fruity aroma is also greener pear, peach, etc.
Taste: Cream, apple, grass, green pear, peach, and a lot of maltose.
Finish: pear, cream, wood, lots of malt.
Summary: The overall taste is sweet. The winery hopes to make a light-style original wine, and it does so with mainly fruity aromas such as pear and apple. On the other hand, the wheat flavor is still well retained, preventing it from becoming the weak body of a grain whiskey.
This is a good sign.
