The Society recently gave Stefan the honour of tasting several different cask samples, before he chose his favourite for bottling and wrote the Tasting Notes.
Stefan’s choice became bottling 66.158: Someone left a cigar in the boudoir, a 20-year-old dram from our Lightly Peated flavour profile, aged in a refill ex-bourbon hogshead and bottled at 51.10% abv.
Stefan’s Tasting Notes for the bottling read: A very well integrated dram; sweet smoke with marzipan on the nose, alongside the fruitiness of green apple and raspberries. This is closely followed by tree bark and dark chocolate with a touch of ginger.
On the palate now, imagine vanilla cream in a cigar box, Demerara sugar and ripe cherries, before a long and dry finish, full of charcoal and salt.
The Gabányi edition is available exclusively to German members, as well as part of a special introductory offer for new members, who can sign up to the Society for a year and include a bottle of 66.158: Someone left a cigar in the boudoir for only £128.
