Murray McDavid Siar Port 18yo 1997 70cl 46%
For this vatting a very famous highland single malt has been enriched with a smidgen of another equally famous malt to create an abundantly verbose dram, which, through maturation in a fresh sherry cask, loquaciously delivers to the nose bundles of soft fruits, banana and cinnamon, balanced by softer apples. Delicate ginger and savoury shortbread tarries in the perfume. The palate boldly communicates vanilla custard and burnt sugar, twinned with the subtle hints of citrus and warm apple pie, syrupy pears and a whispering finish of milk chocolate. This complex spirit engages the senses in the art of maturation.
