Named after a famous Englishman, Thomas Parr, who lived during the 15th and 16th centuries. His remains now lie in Westminster Abbey. This particular brand, while now owned by Diageo, was founded in 1909!
Awarded as the '2007 World Whisky of the Year', it comes bottled with a funky, brown bottle which oozes character and charm. The bottle is not smooth but is intentionally mottled and wrinkled similar to the skin of a very old man, paying tribute to Thomas Parr, who is the oldest man in the history of England, living for more than 150 years.
The taste comes with a firm vanilla tinged with oak and spice begins to rise first, with sawgrass, and green willow following. One with patience will also find flavors of honey and caramel underneath the soft smoke as well.
