Glenshiel 10 Tasting Notes
Nose: Floral with juicy apple skins, toffee and spice. With a little time the nose becomes more open with vanilla, coconut and toffee notes and tinned peaches in the background. A dash of water softens the nose and delivers a delicious home cooked apple crumble with a hint of chocolate, doused in custard. A little dusty oak from the first fill bourbon barrel.
Palate: The palate follows through on the nose and adds some gently malty notes and oak spice. The light oiliness from the distillate combines beautifully with the vanilla from the cask to deliver lush custard notes. A touch of heather, gentle spices and dash of cappuccino balance the sweetness perfectly. A dash of water brings out more juicy fruit, vanilla and coconut. Easy to drink yet so much to explore.
Finish: Medium length. Moves from spicy to juicy and back again. A touch of heather adds a pleasant dryness at the very end.

What you need to know about taxes
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
