Footnotes

  • THE ESSENCE OF PERFECTION
    "Provocative and alluring, with the initial aroma
    of sultanas, ground coffee, chocolate praline and spicy
    orange. Next comes apple, honeyed marzipan, sweet
    molasses and morello cherries before whispers of caraway
    and Madeira cake complete the experience.
    This is your chance to taste perfection, so savour it well.
    Hold the spirit on the tongue to release first the flavours
    of ginger cake, spiced toffee, butterscotch and then coffee
    amaretto, roasted coffee followed with tropical fruits
    of guava and melon. Thick cut marmalade and citrus
    fruits, which are the hallmark of this classic malt,
    will linger seductively in the background throughout."
    Richard Paterson
    Master Distiller
