Product Description

The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks from some of Scotland's most destinguished distilleries.

The Mossburn company of distillers and blenders will soon have a distillery in the Borders and are also the company behind the new and now operational Torabhaig distillery on Skye.

Each numbered release will only ever yield a finite number of bottles.

Releae number 3 is a small batch and cask strength Blair Athol, a South Highlands distillery in the village of Pitlochry.

Aged for 10 years in a refill Hogshead.

Distilled 2007 Bottled 30/11/2017

Bottled without any colouring or chill filtration.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Victoria sponge cake mix, apricot jam, hot cross buns, honey nut cereal, barley squash, lemon cheesecake, toasted oak. Water brings out more herbal & minerally notes.

Palate: Hot oat cereal with cream, lemon sponge, sugared almonds, toasted straw, water brings out more orchard fruit, waxy citrus and herbal honey.

Finish: Gooseberry fool, toasted spices, lime marmalade, honey on toasted cereal, lemongrass.

Needs water for me to bring out its fruitier elements, very different to the Flora and Fauna release that is one of the few official releases from this Pitlochry based distillery that is more famous for being the home of Bell's blended scotch.
