A fantastic batch of five ex-bourbon hogsheads from Teaninich distillery was used to create this single malt, distilled in 2007, 2008 and 2009 and aged for more than 11 years. Joyful and comforting all at once, deliciously blending the savoury with the sweet for a memorable tipple.
Nose: Golden-syrup-sponge pudding jumps out, leading on to a cooled matcha latte. A juicy chopped kiwi is left on a wooden chopping board, mingling with the unmistakable freshness of a new cardboard box.
Palate: Mint-dark-chocolate is crumbled on fluffy sponge fingers. Pleasant savoury notes drift in, with maple- cured guanciale and torn purple basil. Madeira cake slices, soaked in tinned fruit cocktail syrup, line the trifle bowl ready for the next layers to be added.
Finish: Earthy and decadent rosemary-and-truffle crisps, together with ground blade mace and warming parsnip soup, have the last word.
