Footnotes

  • Casks 1781 and 1782 were both filled on the same day, 7th June 1951, and then left slumbering deep in our darkest warehouse where even moonlight could not infiltrate. After over half a century our Master Distiller deemed the time was right and combined their individual aroma, flavour and finishes in a unique creation worthy of the ancient gods themselves.

    A Taste of The Divine
    The aroma of Selene tells you something heavenly is in the air. Lime, mandarin and grapefruit with hints of bergamot laced with thick plumy treacle, aged Matusalem sherry, ginger and spice all combine to captivate the senses.
    Holding the spirit long in the month is the key to unlocking its many secrets. Tangy, thick cut marmalade, roasted coffee beans, spiced ground cinnamon and chocolate cake, are soon complemented by marinated plums, apricots and mangos soaked in Port wine and dark muscovado sugar.

    大摩塞琳娜—1951—58年
    1781和1782號酒桶在1951年6月7日同一天注入後,置放在半點月光也沒法滲進的漆黑倉庫裡讓它沉睡。半個多世紀後,我們的首席釀酒師認為時機成熟了,把兩桶酒獨特的香氣、味道及餘韻結合一起,創造出獨一無二、令古代諸神都垂青的佳釀。
    神聖的味道
    塞琳娜的香氣讓人間得享天上芳華。青檸、柑橘和柚子帶點佛手柑的氣息,滲出濃厚而輕盈的糖蜜、陳年馬圖薩雷姆雪莉酒、薑和香料,全結合一起把感官迷醉了。
    把酒在口腔內細味是解開其眾多迷人秘密的關鍵。瞬間,芳香撲鼻而濃厚的果醬、烤咖啡豆、五香肉桂粉和朱古力蛋糕味,會伴隨醃製李子、浸泡在砵酒裡的杏子和芒果,以及黑糖味在口腔瀰漫。
