We’re very proud of all the Black Friday whiskies we’ve bottled so far, and this is no exception: we’re delighted to present a third exclusive, one-off Black Friday single malt, bottled just for us by Elixir Distillers.
To celebrate Black Friday 2019, we've vatted together a handful of outstanding, refill bourbon hogsheads from a secret Speyside gem. Founded in 1810, the distillery is known for its light and elegant style, and the whisky produced there is rarely seen as a single malt – this exclusive bottling shows why it’s a whisky that’s close to our hearts.
Soft yet zesty, with a substantial, slightly-oily mouthfeel, this beautifully autumnal single malt brings to bear all the fruit and ripeness for which Speyside whisky is best known – a dram showcasing the brighter side of Black Friday.
- Nose Vanilla cream poured over a big bowl of fruit salad – mango, pineapple, guava, papaya and Granny Smith apples. Lemon drizzle cake and white chocolate buttons follow, all balanced by a deep scrape of lime zest with a touch of pith.
- Palate The cream’s back, with even more fruit behind it, all piled up in a polished oak bowl. The guava and apples lead, with more tropical fruit hiding under a layer of leafy mint and tarragon. Peach and apricot notes build, with spicy cinnamon and brown sugar crumble topping.
- Finish Soft spice and brown sugar linger, with apples and vanilla cream slowly re-emerging from under the crumble.
- Comment It’s a slowly building autumn dessert, spanning the orchard and tropical sides of the grocer’s fruit aisle. A sprinkle of crumbly topping brings it all together into a sweet and fruity whole.
