About The Whisky
A surprisingly fresh and fruity 21-year-old dram from Speyside. More than two decades in cask have sanded the edges off this whisky to reveal a soft and fruity spirit within – elegant and well-aged.
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Layers of fruit slowly climb out of the glass: sweet apple and white-wine-poached pear, raisins and sultanas, flambéed pineapple and creamy banana splits. A touch of mint fondant follows, leading to madeira-soaked spiced sponge cake and old, wax-polished floors. The fruity notes build, as the whisky sits in the glass, joined by freshly cut grass.
Rich and creamy on the palate with milky coffee quickly swamped by the fruit from the nose: more apples and pears as well as tropical fruit jelly. Darker notes of polished oak and bittersweet dark chocolate build underneath, along with spicy cinnamon and clove, and a balancing dusting of brown sugar. Old leaves appear at the end, drifting across an autumnal forest floor.
The creaminess lingers, with old oak and a touch of cherry sweetness fading to leave mocha coffee.
