Hunter Laing & Co Ltd proudly offer this fine example of the distillers art as a special selection from their oldest stocks of whisky. No water has been added to reduce its strength, as the Angel's Share has already taken care of that. They have chosen to bottle this malt without chill-filtration and natural colour. By doing so, they leave in all the distillers preferred qualities apparent on the nose, palate and finish which is self-evident when you remove the cork.
As you can see on the label, this is one bottle of a very restricted offering, which, once consumed, cannot ever be repeated.
Tasting Notes: This golden whisky opens softly with moss and hay on the nose, then releases dried fruits which are surrounded by gentle peat smoke.
The palate is soft with more dried fruits, some coconut and with peat smoke more apparent than on the nose, yet again well integrated.
The finish is medium long, slightly dry on toasted barley with a hint of pepper.
