Carsebridge 48 Year Old (Special Release 2018)

Carsebridge 48 Year Old Bottling Note

A show-stopper of a single grain from the closed Carsebridge Distillery here, which was bottled for the 2018 edition of Diageo's Special Releases. It's actually the only single grain whisky to feature - what a choice it was - as well as being the oldest whisky from this year's range. It was matured in refill American-oak hogsheads for 48 years in total before it was bottled a cask strength 43.2%. Wowzer.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Light and delicate with oaky vanilla, red fruit, rose water and raspberry notes. Gentle cinnamon spice, too. Peach, apple and orange oil comes through with time, along with a dash of mint leaf.

Palate Livelier than you'd expect from the nose. The vanilla takes on a peppery character alongside strawberries and cream, banoffee pie, blackcurrant, coconut, linseed oil and rocket leaf. With a dash of water, sweet spices come through.

Finish Medium-length and defined by a soft oakiness, a general oiliness, and more of that banoffee pie.

Overall A characterful, well-aged grain with loads going on.
