Thirty years old and you can certainly tell.
A grain whisky that has achieved absolute excellence with just three decades of ageing. Son of a world, that of 1980s Scotland, that no longer exists. A world now sacrificed on the altar of industrial and mass production. This bottle makes us fall in love and rediscover our love and passion for the Spirits of old Caledonia, that land where every facet of the distillery, from the water to the distiller, could make that imperceptible difference that brings the product alive. Differences that after years of rest created nuances that were more and more intriguing and complex. A succulent dish... Coconut and strange oriental spices on the nose… A hint of sweetness, of an exotic tart with raspberries and coconut. On the palate, it's metallic, shiny!
The flavour is very, very sweet, but smooths rapidly to offer a fruity, pleasant experience. After a few minutes its rubbery tannins hit the palate, eliciting a rewarding, delicious finish.
