Another "mystery malt," MacTarnahan's is imported by The Portland Brewing Co. (Portland, OR), makers of MacTarnahan's Scottish Style Amber Ale. This is the first scotch to be imported by an American brewery under its own label.
Nose of moderate sherry and malt. Organic notes. The palate is sweet nectar -- very sweet in fact -- honeyed, buttery, and fruity, with oranges. The texture is glycerin-like and pleasing. In the finish, this all continues and gains a somewhat "toasted" flavor. Also gets a little bitter, but not enough to kill anything. This is a sweet, mouth-filling, yummy whisky.
