70cl // 54.0% ABV
This is a superb 23 Year Old single cask blended malt whisky from our Single Cask series. It was distilled on the 10th March 1989 and comes almost entirely from one very famous Speyside distillery, though it was “spooned” with a small portion of whisky from a nearby distillery and thus cannot be called single malt. There are just 288 bottles of the stuff, drawn from refill hogshead 288 on the 26th November 2012.
Nose: Plums, drifting wood smoke and apple and pear crumble, becoming more floral with time in the glass, or with water.
Palate: A soft silky mouth-feel with notes of chocolate mousse and a development of caramelised pears.
Finish: An oaky finish with a little salt and notes of black coffee.
