- ABV 40%
A further addition to this very successful stable of malts, the sixteen year old has received high praise worldwide, continuing along the path of popularity carved out by its younger siblings. With a very low degree of peating employed (if any at all), the maturation takes place in top quality ex-sherry casks as well as traditional ex-bourbon casks. This echoes the flavours of the 12 year old but adds deeper dried fruit notes. For many tasters, it's also a sherried Speysider offering more delicacy and finesse than most.
Tasting note: Polished copper. Just as the label suggests: An attractive mix of x Bourbon and Sherry on the nose, though probably more of the latter; Vanilla, honey, plum and dried apricot, with 3-4 minutes air contact deepening the bouquet, conjuring scents of dried flowers, raisins and pepper. Light & breezy, with a moderate burst of dried fruits, orange zest and vanilla building towards a crisp finish. Spicier through the aftertaste. The sense of lightness and elegance makes for an alternative Speyside style, and a perfect 'house' malt.40% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... Double cask matured. More subtle and complex than the new 12 year old, and not as sweet. Creamy in texture and floral on the nose, with dried vanilla, gentle spice, nectarine, kiwi, plum, and lemon gum drops. Soft, elegant finish with a hint of mint. Great balance of a variety of flavors and lots of finesse. A well-crafted whisky!
