AN ABUNDANCE OF HIDDEN DELIGHTS

$679.99

The age on this whisky from a demolished distillery was immediately apparent, fascinatingly multifaceted with aromas of stewed apples, passion fruit, honey, beeswax, earthy and tobacco notes. Yet we were all searching for something - that famous needle in that haystack. With time we found it; that petrol-like character which can be present in well-aged Riesling wines.

To taste incredibly fruity, almost rum-like, coconut, pineapple and mango – mysterious like a short story from Edgar Allan Poe. A little water and we lit a Tonka bean scented candle in the dungeon of a mansion (maybe we were reading ‘The Cask of Amontillado’) and an amazing texture on the palate, gracefully understated with very discreet rancio flavours. Single malt from selected hogsheads, married in a bourbon barrel since 2018.
