Footnotes

  • Tasting note:

    After maturing slowly for sixty years the result is a beautifully balanced Single Malt with poise and great complexity. The introduction to the whisky is one of fresh fruit and spices – aromas of Cox's Pippins and Granny Smith apples, laced with cinnamon and root ginger. In the background linger subtle hints of lavender and rose petals, wrapped in a sweet, toffee parcel.

    A sip of the whisky reveals the age and depth of character. Initially there are hints of cedar wood and freshly cut grass. However, these are quickly replaced by rich, burnt fruit notes with a drying, spicy edge and a dusting of white pepper. A smokiness twists its way through the flavour leaving a slightly bitter, treacle toffee finish.

    酒評:

    經過60年慢慢的蘊釀熟成,此單一純麥威士忌擁有巧美的平衡感及多重的層次。聞其香,先有鮮果與香料的芬芳撲鼻,包括英國蘋果(Cox's Pippins)及澳洲青蘋果(Granny Smith)的果香,同時透出肉桂與老薑的香氣,隨之而來的是一陣隱約蘊含在甜美奶糖裡的薰衣草與玫瑰花瓣的香味。

    喝上一口,此酒獨特的陳醇與深度立即表露無遺,最初帶有雪杉與新鮮剪草的氣息,但很快就給濃烈的果香取代,味道馥郁辛辣,帶有白胡椒味,還隱約滲透煙熏味,留下微苦的糖蜜奶糖的回味。
