11 Year Old Hidden Spirits
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Hidden Spirits
An 11-year old whisky selected and bottled by Italian independent Hidden Spirits. This was distilled in 2006 at Aultmore and bottled after 11 years of maturation, including a finish in Amarone wine casks. Bottled at cask strength, it's an intensely flavoured dram, carefully balancing Aultmore's herbal and grassy spirit against the power of the wine cask.

There's very little information to be found anywhere on this whisky, but having been tempted by the Amarone influence and cask strength finish, I took a bit of a punt on it when purchasing. I'm glad I did, this is right up there and one of the most beautiful drams I've tasted. On the nose it is soft and sweet, but dont be fooled, on the palette this is a big, big hitter. After the initial power of the cask strength, comes a very rich caramel flavour that's so smooth and thick you could almost chew on it. After letting it sit in your mouth for a short period, the finish goes on and on. As the sweetness fades, the Amarone flavours come to the fore. This isn't an everyday scotch, but a great experience to really enjoy with good company. Not many of these available so if you have the chance to buy, do it, you wont regret it!
