This astonishing 25-year-old is one of the most revered whiskies in the world. It received a perfect 100 out of 100 score from the Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago in 1999. It also received a Gold at the International Spirits Challenge.
Very fruity, with notes of orange and pear on the nose. It also has a good dollop of sweet spices, which develop into an almost smoky character. The sherry on the nose is refined and well-balanced, with hints of honey and caramel. Textbook malt delivery gives way to a mouthful of dried apricots, prunes and figs. Hints of nutmeg and cinnamon weave in and out of an epic whack of honey that only a Speyside distillery of this kind of nobility can produce. A long, full finish that carries fig, spices, chewy oak and a touch of light smoke.
