[50.0%・12 Years Old・Distilled in 1975・Bottled in 1987・R. W. Duthie & Co. Bottling Selected by Silvano Samaroli・Limited Release of 240 Bottles]
There is some initial greenness, lemon sorbet with some delicate peat melting into the mango pudding; all the while the natural malt fragrance floats about.
Palate & Finish:
Soft honey brushing over the mangos, with fine base layers of candle wax and soft nougat. Vanilla and lemon sugar effortlessly intertwine with the soft grassy peat and a wee pinch of pepper.
The soft chewy malt dusted with icing sugar gradually dissolves away, leaving hint of Vienna almonds..
Stylistically this would be best suited as a first dram, but such a wondrous dram would always be a hard act to follow.. magic from the Maestro!
