Product Description

A fourth release of this closed Dufftown, Speyside distillery in the annual Diageo Special releases series.

Aged for 32 years in refill American oak hogsheads filled in 1984 and bottled at natural cask strength of 48.2% ABV

Only 3972 bottles released

Shows fantastic balance and poise as fruit rolls into spice, then into sweet herbal notes and back again, its characterful spirit clearly aided by excellent cask influence. Makes a luxurious aperitif.

Nose: Old fashioned toffee, caramelised red apples, demorera sugar, orange fondant, marzipan, buttery pastry, apricot glaze and hints of floral and spice notes.

Palate: Crisp apples, grassy-herbal medium body/mouthfeel, lemon curd, dusting of sweet icing sugar on refreshing ripe melon with some toasted oak creeping in too.

Finish: Green and red apples, sour notes of lemon balanced by sweet aromatic spices and warming oak along with hints of apricot glazed pastries.

A rare and unusual old whisky, subtle in style yet possessing considerable hidden depths.
