Stepping up just 3% a/v from the 43%, the Distiller’s Selection leaves behind the delicate floral notes and now highlights more of the plum pudding richness of the old port barrels on the nose. The Distiller’s Selection has a delightfully round finish with the added notes of toffee and chocolate. The sweetness of port and richness of malt are accompanied by a touch of highland peat. This is an extremely well balanced whisky.
We call this the Distiller’s Selection because at this level of alcohol by volume the whisky expresses some unusual and complex notes that our distiller is oh so proud of.
