Gentle maturation in the cool, stable environment found high above sea level lets the subtle character of this distinctive 50 year old single malt emerge. The use of a carefully selected cask ensures that the softer characters of the precious spirit are never overpowered.
On the nose, you are met with aromas of freshly felled oak in an orchard of apples, pears and plums. Warming spices are mellowed by lashings of manuka honey. Once on your palate, it releases bursts of exotic tropical fruits and dried apricots, sweetened with flavours of vanilla toffee, crème caramel and flame raisins. Spices and fruits balance perfectly providing a luxurious, velvety finish.
Securely encased within an individually numbered, handblown Glencairn crystal decanter. The decanter is luxuriously presented within a striking Italian crafted wooden box, furnished with soft, premium Italian leather. Sealed with a wooden transit cork, an engraved, solid brass and gold plated glass stopper is also provided as well as an individually numbered book, hand signed by Distillery Manager Graham Eunson. Finally, a premium leather carry bag completes the presentation.
