Age: 24 years old
Cask: Bourbon cask and French wine barrique
Nose: Pithy orange, candy, white chocolate ganache, roses, and a faint whiff of the sea.
Palate: Tart and tangy fruits. Blood oranges, raspberry, a touch of bitter marmalade with sweet fragrant smoke running throughout.
Finish: Parma violets and love hearts – a fruity sherbet explosion.
My gosh, wow. I can see why people queue-up for days outside the distillery to get their mitts on this stuff. It’s absolutely bloody lovely.
Sample came from the lovely chaps at Master of Malt for £29.63. Not bad, given the bottle sets you back £465. Sadly, it’s all gone now…
