A Note on This Beer
The #9 Scotch Ale in the World on BeerAdvocate, Traquair House’s Jacobite Ale is a bottle of velvety indulgence that tastes like a boozy Heath Bar sprinkled with toasted pecans. Its layers of rich caramel complexity has BA singing its praises, giving this Scotch Ale an outstanding 4.15!
Brewed with coriander in a 1738 copper kettle and fermented in oak barrels, Jacobite Ale reaches historic depths of flavor-- coriander enlivens the roasted malts with a medley of spiced character, while the oak amplifies its deep caramel notes.
Aromas of honey-roasted almonds, spicy molasses, and whiskey-drenched raisins entice you to take a sip of this complex 8% ABV Scottish masterpiece. Herbal notes of coriander and light cinnamon spice dance on the tongue, mingling with bittersweet chocolate and rich toffee from the darkly roasted malts. Dark cocoa and caramel-glazed pecans glide smoothly over the palate with a light mouthfeel and an oaky sweetness that lingers in a crisp finish.
Jacobite Ale brings a treasured eighteenth-century recipe to life with exciting flavors seldom seen in the Scotch Ale. Indulge in this dark dessert of roasted caramel and chocolate toffee elegance.
