"Anecdotes are our short whisky anthology stories. They are one-off and unique, from rare finds we come across through our whisky journey. When a fabulous batch of 4 casks of a very intriguing blended malt landed in our warehouse, we chose 2 casks for vatting our first Anecdote.
This blended malt contains 17% Laphroaig, 20% HIghland Park and the rest of 63% of the malts come from Speyside's famous distilleries. It's been a good long marriage of 24 years in bourbon barrels that provides fruitiness, a touch of maritime notes and subtle peat in one perfect dram.
Nose: A delicate fruit salad with notes of dried apricots, custard and a touch of sweet smoke.
Palate: Croissants, slightly salted fudge, apricot jam, oranges, plums and fried sugar.
Finish: Tinned pears, cornflakes and slightly smoky sweetness."
