Deceptively fresh for its age, this is an incredibly well-integrated and harmonious (not to mention, very rare) forty-year-old single grain that is light yet sumptuous, fresh and clean. The third single grain whisky to be bottled as a Special Release is at its best with water and with a fine, relaxed finish, it makes an unusual and delicious apéritif.


Flavour Profile: Nose

Clean, fruity top-notes of ripe red apples, pineapple and cape gooseberry rise above a wide-ranging, softly sweet melange of boiled and soft-chew strawberry sweets, shortcrust pastry and milk chocolate with smooth, succulent toffee. 

Flavour Profile: Palate

Cool, light, drying and pine-y; gaining heat and sweetness together as if a salted caramel ice cream was infused with savoury smokiness. Then quite dense and raisiny, with hints of pear drops and plum, and a pungency right to the finish. Water brings out its best, now cooler, lightly sweet, salty and softly waxy with ginger and white pepper spice, growing chewy and coating; briefly fruity then warming like a rich, moist ginger cake.

Flavour Profile: Finish

Short yet warm, gentle and sweet, with crème brûlée and ginger beneath a light, cleansing eucalyptus. There’s a faint woodiness as the sweetness is underscored by subtle tannins.
