This is the third release of the spellbinding 22 year old Islay single malt that has intrigued and thrilled whisky lovers world wide. It's a bottling that specifically aims at exploring the mysterious relationship between cask selection and whisky flavour. Factors influencing this can include coopering skills, techniques, oak types, cask sizes, oak grains, forest origins, and their other-worldly interaction with the spirit while maturing in the warehouse. Matured in a selection of 5 different cask types. Now relatively rare.
Tasting note: Burnished bronze appearance with a pale gold hue. The aroma has some serious depth but remains at moderate intensity and refuses to budge over the fifteen minutes spent nosing. It offers subdued yet intriguing dark rum-like scents of brown sugar, cocoa and fruit cake. The palate is similarly coy and really doesn’t give much on first impression. Second time round the fruit cake qualities are more evident, balanced by a chewy tannic dryness and mild spiciness. Finish sees a lovely touch of muscat and cocoa. Concludes dry with the fruit cake notes persisting. This is a very restrained whisky, the better elements of which require a lot of coaxing. Swirling it around the mouth as one does with wine helps to release more of the flavours. 48.7% Alc./Vol.
