RUSSIAN, JAMAICAN, TURKISH, THAI

This 30 year old Speysider is 54.5% after maturing in a refill hogshead.

Flavour profile:  Old & dignified

Outturn:  190 bottles

Panel's tasting note:  "Opulent and elegant, the nose wove a textured fabric of sweetness (fudge, butterscotch, caramel, manuka honey, dark chocolate, peanut brittle) shot through by threads of garden exotics, tobacco leaf, sandalwood, After Eights and soft leather. The palate combined effervescent citric tingles with treacle toffee and old oak – Cossack-dancing Russian caramels smoked cigars while Jamaican gingerbread men limbo-danced on polished floors. The reduced nose evoked Botanic Gardens, cabinet makers, mint and lemon Turkish Delight and Thai spice. The palate – sweetly sophisticated with citric élan – strawberry, blackcurrant and lemon Life Savers, ginger snaps and tobacco – a Marypark marvel worth savouring."

Drinking tip:  "A captivating after-dinner dram (preferably on a large yacht)"
