This 17 year old Highlander was matured in a 2nd fill hogshead and is 55.8%.
Flavour profile: Juicy, oak & vanilla.
Outturn: 291 bottles.
Panel's tasting note: "On the nose neat like toasted rye bread with plenty of salted butter, coarse cut bitter orange peel and a hot mug of vanilla spiced herbal tea – pure coziness. Warm, sweet and spicy on the palate; patchouli pure essential oil, juicy orange gummy bears and with a very unusual finish of bitter Arbutus honey (strawberry tree).
With water, a creamy sweet aroma of pineapple chunks in fruit juice as well as vanilla poached pears. To taste, now well balanced; fruity, floral and herbal combined with mellow vanilla notes which tone down the warm and spicy wood flavours and this made it a truly relaxing treat."
Part of the SMWS August of 2019 'Hauf & Hauf' theme, this bottling was paired with a beer that was selected by Calgary SMWS member and beer writer Don Tse. Don selected Hoegaarden Whitbier to pair with this release, stating: "The original Belgian whitbier is viewed by many as liquid bread. Light malt, gentle citrus notes and a hint of clove will compliment this dram beautifully."
