Speyside 60 Year Old Master of Malt
Notes from the producer:
Nose: Beautiful malt to the fore, with a sublime backing of nutmeg, cocoa butter and raisin. Gentle waves of soft white grapes, custard apples and golden syrup. Astonishingly refined oaken notes.
Palate: Creamy, mouth-filling palate entry delivering a touch of chocolate and ground allspice. Quite tropical too - there’s a note of coconut, perhaps mango. An ethereal high-note akin to tomato stems. With time, it becomes quite herbal, with a potpourri-like character, sitting very nicely atop a solid core of rich, thick malt.
Finish: A long, elegant finish, trailing off gracefully with pipe tobacco, molasses and dried herbs. A slice of tangy green apple lingers.
