We left this single malt to the notes of Alabama Song by the Doors… Being on the protective side, we're loathe to ever bottle it. We'd like to try for even longer maturations with more complex developments and refinements, but then curiosity gets the better of us and so here it is - a new release of this angelic, elegant spirit with blues in its soul and rock in its veins. Appropriately, the nose has great rhythm with highs of alternating tones. First of all, Speyside classics: bread, yeast, fruit and damp meadow grass, and then a brusque change of tune to balsamic tones of rosemary, oregano and lavender. It's a script that's repeated on the palate with a very dry, sapid, tasty flavour with lavish tones. The opening is fruity, the finish very balsamic and mineral. The invitation remains…. “Show me the way to the next whisky bar” (Alabama Song / Whisky Bar - The Doors, 1967)
