A single cask whisky bottled by Dornoch's Thompson Bros. The origin of this whisky has been redacted, but it is safe to say that it is a very famous Speyside distillery close to Craigellachie bridge, which happens to be depicted on the label. Matured in a refill American oak barrel for 24 years, this cask produced only 310 bottles.
Nose: very lovely, very classical. Pollens, soft waxes, honeys, breads, pastries, wild flowers. All top notch modern fruity Speyside single malt at a perfect maturity. There's also some more direct fruit notes of melon, tangerine and apricot. Very lovely. Mouth: a little drier and more peppery than the nose suggested. Orange cocktail bitters, herbal teas, Cointreau, mint julep, heather honey and marjoram. Some nice crystallised exotic fruits beyond that as well as some slightly punchy spice from the wood. Finish: quite long and full of cereals, bitter lemon, fruity flapjack, sultana and barley sugars.
