40 Year Old Speyside Bottling Note

This is the second edition of our award-winning forty year old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky from our Secret Bottlings Series. The second edition comes packaged with a new bottle and label design and contains whisky of awesome complexity and depth!

"Find me a Dundee fruit cake that smells more like a Dundee fruit cake than this, and you'll have done well... Magnificent. Has no problem mastering the years."

- Jim Murray (95 Points)

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!
