1993 Carn Mor "Celebration of the Cask" Glen Grant 27 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Tasting note: [30ml sample] Full term in a single ex-Bourbon barrel. Oozes charm from the outset in a faultless and fabulously pure honey-orchard fruit-laden bouquet that completely draws you in. The palate is full, rich and creamy with a slow explosion of figs, dried apricots, red apples, honeyed cereals and traces of beeswax and anise through the finish. Also beautifully poised - mature while maintaining some of the zest of youth. With minimal water, you get the kind of charm found in certain 'artisan' cognacs. In short, a great cask racked at the right time that epitomises distillery character. 172 bottles at 49.5% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
Notes from the bottlers... Expect orchard fruits with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and orange peel.
