The enigmatic arts of the distiller are shrouded by meagre facts. There are dark secrets within and marking the passage of time alone bestows insufficient heft. Through these burdened hands great oak and steadfast principles pass. High art, complex and mysterious is revealed only to those who see stars.
"Delicate and delightful. Heaps of red apple peel, but also tinned peaches and apricots with some whiffs of pineapple. There’s some notes of strawberries and cassis too. The palate has a pleasant viscosity with a nice malty character supporting a myriad of darker flavours. A dark and mysterious dram." - Thijs Klaverstijn, Distiller
Nose: Simply stunning. Tropical fruit, coconut, tobacco, oak spices and toasted pine needles weave an intricate web of aromas. With a bit of time, this beautiful whisky opens up to waves of mango, honey-drizzled melon, warm orange zest, grilled pineapple and ripe summer strawberries. It’s mouth-wateringly succulent and fruity – the gentle oak offering coconut, ginger, buttery shortbread, vanilla custard and hints of tobacco.
Palate: The viscosity and depth to this dram are out of this world; the oak notes of tobacco and brown sugar, chocolate and coconut provide the base for all those wonderful fruit combinations to shine. A drop of water and a second sip further explore the woven layers of this remarkable whisky.
Finish: The succulent fruit sweetness lasts for an age on the palate, apricot, mango and baked banana, toasted sweet oak, honey and vanilla – you just don’t want it to end.
