North Star Campbeltown 4 Year Old Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
$125. 00 Bottle
Quite a novel blend from one of our favourite whisky regions. Distilled in 2014 and matured in two Bourbon hogsheads before being bottled at natural strength, this is a limited run of 726 bottles. No doubt there's a fair measure of Springbank involved here... Tasting note: [from a 20ml sample] Pale straw gold. Very complex on the nose. Salted caramel chocolate, as well as some muesli / oatmeal / porridge to the opening whiffs. Later, peppery, youthful, slightly briney. Final pass finds attractive fresh, fruity notes and light menthol. Quite intense, with a mildly chewy, oily mouthfeel. Fairly primary with sweetish malt / shortbread and beeswax flavours. Very warming and brawny towards the finish. Ends medium long, briney, zesty, bittersweet. Finally sooty. Fascinating young malt. 57% Alc,.Vol. Non chill filtered.
