A pleasant, mature whisky, which has almost succumbed to the oak.
Highland Single Malt 35 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: A lovely, mature nose of tropical fruit – apricot, pineapple and melon with hints of lemon and sawdusty oak. Beautifully poised and elegant. \n
Palate: Soft and buttery with a considerable amount of oak. The tropical fruit and barley is well buried but just about discernible as is the citrus. \n
Finish: With that amount of oak it comes as no surprise that the finish is a little drying and bitter. \n
Comment: A pleasant, mature whisky, which has almost succumbed to the oak.
Nose: Sweet, dark wood, sherry, fruit, honey, and caramelised brown sugar with a hint of salt. Slightly minty notes, herbal peppermint tea, and a touch of pineapple.\n
Palate: Savoury, with a pleasant, fiery texture. Notes of puffed rice, vanilla, cream crackers, and a leafiness. Fades to a dry, bonfire smokiness.
Finish: Creamy vanilla, butter, rice cakes, interrupted by more perfumed floral notes and chives. This all settles onto comforting notes of pipe tobacco.
Comment: A flavourful whisky that is fresh, invigorating, and indulgent without being too heavy.
