SINGLE MALTS OF SCOTLAND
Only exceptional whiskies are selected by Elixir distillers
Director to be bottled for this exclusive series
from The Single Malts of Scotland. Each bottling
is aged to perfection, celebrating both the classic
characteristics of the distillery and the subtle
changes created by time and oak.
At first a fruity mix of plum wine, caramel cake spread with
quince jam, marshmallows and bubblegum. Chunky gingerbread,
fresh out of the oven, is served with a cup of cardamom tea. Elegant
wildflowers – daisy and meadowsweet – decorate the scene.
Juicy texture, with soft florals and fresh peppermint leaves followed
by damp staves of oak, like barrels of Armagnac resting in a cellar.
Fruity tangerine, heather honey and mango play with more austere
flavours of tobacco and rooibos tea. Exceptionally complex.
Layered and lengthy, with rounded menthol notes, soft liquorice
and dusty wood panels adding accent to the finish.
