One of only 1000 bottles distilled in 1970 and bottled in 2018.
A single grain whisky from the now demolished Carsebridge distillery that was matured for 48 years in American oak hogsheads.
APPEARANCE: Deep amber to rich, antique gold.
BODY: Medium. Thick textured.
NOSE: Delicate and fragile. Shy, then rich and tart. Sweet, floral notes of dried flowers and oil, in a dusty oak drawer. Like a bowl of extremely ripe fruit left in the sunshine; plum, peach and red apple. Hints of sawn oak, mint and white chocolate truffle. Unexpectedly light and balanced throughout.
PALATE: A voluptuous mouthfeel and a big, soft, sweet taste, with juicy hints of apple, then oak shavings and gentle spice that together evoke an artist's studio. A soft, fleeting and subtle floral note.
FINISH:Light, volatile, and longer than expected. Discreet spice; light wood, grape stems, raisins and subtly, more oiled wood.
Bottled at a natural cask strength of 43.2% alc/vol
