"Very well-matured single malt Scotch whisky here from That Boutique-y Whisky Company, distilled by... A Highland distillery. "Which one?" we hear you ask. One of them. One of the selection of distilleries in the Highlands. "Yes, but specifically which Highland distillery?" we hear you ask again, this time a bit more pointedly. OK, we don't know. What we do know is that it's a distillery in the Highlands, and that the whisky was aged for 42 years before the Boutique-y bunch got their mitts on it. That's all we know!
Nose: Lots of tropical fruit brightness here, with dried mango and pineapple chunks galore. A slow build of herbaceous richness grows in the background.
Palate: Cinnamon, anise, caraway, melted butter, and plum jam, all balanced wonderfully together.
Finish: Vanilla pod richness, with herbal elements once again making their way to the fore."
