Product Description

This well-sherried Highland single malt Scotch whisky was laid to rest at the Blair Athol distillery in November 1995, where it remained undisturbed for 20 long years before being bottled in May 2016 especially for The Whisky Vault by celebrated independent bottlers Douglas Laing & Co. Ltd from their Douglas McGibbon stocks.

A superb malt that is one of just 180 bottles taken from sherry cask number 11163, bottled at a natural cask strength of 51.8% ABV and supplied with smart presentation tube.

TASTING NOTES: -
Nose: Opens warmly spiced and runs to soft barley with a macerated dark fruit style
Palate: Lively still with spices to the fore – then doughy – home baked fruit pie tones
Finish: Those warming spices still so abundant, with a gristy, and stewed apples quality.
