The Classic Cask
Rare Scotch Whisky, Aged 35 Years
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Massively bourbony; a roasty, slightly nutty-sweet, cocoa-dry aroma. Fascinating sub-strata of bamboo shoots and malt. Big and complex.
Palate: Aged from the off: very dry oaky tones and roast malt. Very chewy.
Finish: Sweetens drastically with toffee-vanilla and some fading coffee on the long, tapering finish.
Comment: An enormous whisky which hangs together impressively for its great age.
Nose: Rhododendrons. Cereal-grain nuttiness but also sherry. Linseed oil on a cricket bat.
Palate: Fruit, raisins, fudge, cream.
Finish: Well balanced with a light oak dryness.
Comment: Slightly woody in aroma, but develops nicely.
