TO DIE FOR

This 25 year old Speysider spent 24 years in an ex-bourbon refill hogshead before being transferred into a second fill toasted oak hogshead for the remainder of its maturation

Flavour profile:  Deep, rich & dried fruits

Outturn:  288 bottles

Panel's tasting note:  "Wow!! The nose is big, bold and beautiful, floral, herbal and fruity – essence of rose petals, patchouli oil, rolled oolong tea leaves, fresh mint, ripe plums…  discover 1001 aromas but just wait until you taste it. Brilliant albeit, no surprise, a little tamer; roasted pineapple with honey and pistachio, candies tangerine peel and the soft spiciness of gingered gooseberry chutney. Water added surprising freshness, lemonade with orange blossom water and the taste was simply ‘to die for’. After 24 years in an ex-bourbon refill hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a second fill toasted oak hogshead for the remainder of its maturation."

Drinking tip:  "The title says it all"
