Whisky or Whiskey

Insider knowledge: Master of Malt 40 Year Old Speyside (2nd Edition) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Master of Malt 40 Year Old Speyside (2nd Edition) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: The nose opens with a bowl of dried fruits gently macerating in golden rum which leads to subtle notes of winter spice and red berry fruits.

Palate: The palate is nutty with a sweet Horchata undercurrent building into bolder notes of Christmas cake and stewing passion fruit.

Finish: Forty years old with a finish to match - incredibly long with notes of raisins and sultanas. then, finally, a lick of cinnamon.

Overall: This is a stunning example of how a whisky can still flourish after sitting in an oak cask for forty years, simply incredible.

Rum-soaked dried fruit?

"Rum-soaked dried fruit"? Yeah, that works. Hints of anise or black licorice. A touch of the leathery. There are other subtle notes of spices I can't identify. On first taste, what is that? Sweet figs? Candied dried fruit? It's wonderful! Some spiciness now. A touch of the anise. A touch of the leather. Return of that opening flavor---what is that? Buttery, sweet, dried fruit very tastily offered. Yum! It finishes well, complex. Very nice stuff. I couldn't quite get myself to spring for a whole bottle, so I bought the 3 cl sample. Very, very nice!
