SINBAD PREPARING FOR A JOURNEY

At 17 years old, this Speysider is 57.5% after spending its life in a refill butt

Flavour profile:  Spicy & dry

Outturn:  750 bottles

Panel's tasting note:  "The invigorating nose gave us cinder toffee, crème brûlée, burnt sugar, maple syrup, smoky bacon crisps, pork crackling and patchouli; also something between an old-fashioned boat-builder’s yard and an Eastern rug shop – we thought of Sinbad preparing for a journey. Adding water brought Dairy Milk chocolate in a steamroller cab and an Asian dish of prunes and roast pork. The palate was big, tasty and dark – treacle cake, pancakes and bacon with maple syrup, caramel popcorn, vanilla ice-cream, chili chocolate, caramelized apples with pork; beef jerky and leather. In reduction – sweeter and more pleasant –tarte tatin, bacon, custard and cigars."

Drinking tip:  "Not an all night drinking dram - but could be very useful after chopping logs in the snow"

750 ml
