Introducing the first and only official bottling from the North of Scotland Distillery Co, Alloa: a single-grain Scotch whisky aged in bourbon casks for more than 50 years. This cult Distillery fell silent in 1980 and there is a very small chance that this Whisky was produced using Barley and not grain. There is also a chance that these were the very last casks available.
Nose:Pecan nuts and Custard Creams with aromas of nectarine and raspberry. Classic notes of sweet grain – toffee, golden syrup and baked apple with a touch of polish and dusty cinnamon giving a hint to the age. Richer notes of crème caramel, blood orange and glacé cherries build.
Palate: A thick creamy mouthfeel that becomes juicy after the second sip. Flavours of custard and dry spice – nutmeg and cinnamon – set you salivating. Notes of tarragon and oregano blend with blood orange and toasted hazelnuts.
Finish: Walnut and toasted almonds with vanilla fudge linger and slowly fade, leading you on to the next sip. Comment Well-aged spirit such as this is a rare and incredible treat.
The classic sweet notes found in many grain whiskies have been tempered by the time in good wood
