Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Colour

      Warm gold.

    • Nose

      Heathery smoke balanced with subtle floral notes.

    • Palate

      Gentle "peat-reek" flavours with hints of citrus tones and malty nuttiness.

    • Finish

      Lingering smoke and peat with a touch of malted barley sweetness.

  • Tasting Notes by Martine Nouet

    • Nose

      Citrussy, very aromatic. A distant dry smokiness swirling up. A mineral touch (wet pebble). Then a fruity whiff of ripe peaches and pears. All is wrapped in a delicate honeyed veil.

    • Palate

      Rich, silky, enticing. Oily, getting drier on the tongue as spices burst out. Some green gage flavours mingling with spices.

    • Finish

      Lemony, drying on ginger.

    • Comment

      A charming nose with a less delicate palate but all together a refreshing dram.

    Dave B,

    I found this to be quite spectacular for the price. The tasting notes are spot on.

    Rough with too much caramel and far too pricey for what it is, given that I can buy Laphroaig 10 and Ardbeg 10 cheaper than this.

    We have been using this unique product for many years now as an essential part of our Whisky Masterclass. We usually start with Old Ballantruan to open up the head of participants as it has so many different characters all laying in wait to astound. We sold more of this after a Masterclass than any other whisky when we ran Whisky in the Sun in Southern Spain. Challenging to get this across the border from Gibraltar into Spain but well worth the effort. Just starting to introduce our Masterclasses into the North East but lack Distillery help.
