Volume: 700ml ABV: 43% Age: 18 Years Old Country: Scotland
Recently named in the Whisky Magazines ‘Icons of Whisky Awards’ as the Best Highland Single Malt 13 to 20 Years of 2015.
The 18 Years Old is a single malt Scotch whisky of serious distinction. Once it has spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, they are blended back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour. For a whisky of this age this expression has maintained, thanks to the delicate floral spirit and fine Oloroso casks, an incredible degree of vibrancy where the raisiny sweetness of the sherry has been toned down by the nuttiness of the American oak.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Rich, rounded and sweet with dried fruits and a complex floral fragrance.
Taste: The taste is balanced between honey, malt and flowery scents. Dates and figs emerge in the background with a hint of wood smoke.
Finish: The finish is long and enticing with the sweetness of dried fruit and subtle dryness of Oloroso nuttiness.
