CASK No. 39.165

Sweet, fruity & mellow

Handbag hanging in a willow tree

Age 9 Years
Date Distilled 6th April 2009
Cask Type First Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel
Region Speyside
Outturn 1 of 216 bottles
ABV 54.4%


The nose evokes powder puff and Crunchie bars (honeycomb toffee sugar) in a leather handbag, some apple and damson crumble – and then tobacco and savoury hints (oxtail stew with mace). The palate starts with sherbet and apple snow, shifts to cinnamon, Fisherman’s Friend menthol lozenges and birnenbrot (dense bread with dried pear) and leaves you chewing willow twigs. The reduced nose shuffles strawberry pavlova, dried pineapple, watermelon and pomegranate with tree bark and perfumed leather. The palate is now sweeter, smoother and softer – raspberry sauce on vanilla ice-cream, raspberry jam pips and sherbet straws; the dry, gently spiced finish makes this very moreish indeed.
