Product Description

94 points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible

"The rarest of the rare. And in tasting, the flavour map took me back 30 years, to when i used to buy bottles of this from Gordon and Macphail as a 10 year old..probably distilled around 1975. The unique personality and DNA is identical on the palate as it was then; except now, of course, there is far more oak to contend with. Like finding an old lover 30 years further on: a little greyer, not quite in the same lithe shape as three decades earlier..but instantly recognisable and still very beautiful."

Aged in refill Sherry Hogshead

Subtle esters and fresh notes. Some soft summer fruits develop-stewed pear. With nice rum and raisin influences lingering. A defined sweetness with hints of rich dark chocolate and some fruits. Creamy and well balanced.
