    Once and for all.
    • Nose
      Very huge bouquet . Newly dug peat. Burnt heather. Dried flowers. Old books. Leather and oak.
    • Taste
      Smooth, silky. Wraps round the tongue. Sweet. Perfumy. Toffee in icing sugar. Then treacle toffee. Creme brûlée. Toasted almonds.
    • Finish
      Long and warming, but very woody.

    Original tasting notes from the distillery: COLOR: Deep walnut brown with amber and bronze reflexes.
    Scent: Great and complex - strong oak, burnt heather with a little poached pear and chocolate toffee . Fruity-spicy notes of raisin, clove and cinnamon merge with a hint of leather and freshly roasted coffee beans.
    TASTE: Seductively soft with a gleeful sweet undertone. Cedar, oak and dark chocolate underline its elegance.
    SUSTAINABLE: A perfect finish - long-lasting, with distinct oak notes and a smoky component that blends into fruit bread and gives a cozy warmth.
    In the coronation year of King George VI. The contents of barrel no. 843 went on a 64-year journey. During this time, ten experienced Warehouse staff and Malt Masters of several generations took care of making the whisky the best and oldest single malt the world could ever taste. After 64 years, the angels had left only the small amount of 61 bottles in the barrel. His strength, one would think, would have been lost after such a long time. But on the contrary! The 1937 Rare Collection is unbelievably present and of unparalleled quality.
