A lesser known and infrequently encountered Speyside single malt. A part of the Chivas portfolio, little if the rest is seen officially as such a lot is going into Ballantines and other blends. Gordon and Macphail have bottled under license in the past and have now produced this 30 year old offering. Just 110 bottles were created from a single refill Bourbon cask. Bottled at 58% ABV
Official Tasting Notes
Nose – Soft orchard fruits and honeycomb aromas turn out to be poached red apple with thick apricot jam. Creamy vanilla notes balanced by traces of chocolate, mature oak, and beeswax polish.
Palate – Warming and sweet; white pepper mixes with chilli-infused chocolate. Flavours of butter shortbread combine with raspberry, apple, and banana. A fairly drying grapefruit edge develops.
Finish – Delicate and drying oak lingers with a slight nuttiness.
