Tasting Notes

Nose
Exceedingly rich and sweet, lashings of dark chocolate ganache and medjool dates give way to candied orange peel and liquorice honeycomb. Evolves relentlessly.

Palate
Heavy and complex. Black Forest gateaux and walnut nougat with cinnamon spiced coffee. Christmas cake develops strongly in the mid-palate, accompanied by gentle tobacco.

Finish
Lengthy and resinous. Almost vinous tannins balance out the still indulgent chocolate notes and dried fruits. A return to candied orange and hazelnut provides a final flourish.

Chemical Engineering – Distillation

The liberal application of intense heat to an immensely complex chemical concoction has been an indispensable process essential to whisky making since its creation. A critical moment in its history in Scotland was the introduction of spirit safes, a physical lock to protect against widespread excise avoidance.

The remote Isle of Arran, with many small stills operating, was unable to transition and whisky making stopped there for over a century.

The spirit in this cask was distilled in the 90’s, when Ralph Steadman was making his journey across Scotland and when distillation first recommenced on the fair isle.
