Like the 25-year-old edition, this malt comes from long guarded casks that were only very recently bottled. Diageo waited a few more years to bottle this one, taking it up to 28-Year-Old territory, and it’s even better for it. Whiskies like this one are usually held within certain circles and not put out into the public domain. So not only is this whisky wonderfully vibrant in its overall flavour, it’s a chance to get your hands on a bottle of whisky usually reserved for millionaires, diplomats and royalty.
Flavour Profile: Nose
The nose is met with eager, fresh barley, baked apple, ginger cake & green banana, too. A subtle turn follows, winding into vanilla & custard territory & then emerges into a burst of tart fruit flavours.
Flavour Profile: Palate
Energetic & zesty, the palate experiences orange juice & hot cinnamon first. Baked apple, almond & coconut continue the journey to a sharp, menthol closure.
Flavour Profile: Finish
Delicate & gentle. There is a distant wisp of smoke & white pepper leading to a slowly drying but long & enduring finish.
