Our favourite Arran is back on the shelf after almost a year of hunting. This one is aged for 19 years in a Fino Sherry since 1996. Lots of nuttiness (and oiliness) on nose. Stewed fruits emerged on the palate, coupled with vanilla, cream and nuttiness. Taste almost like a yummy fruit tart.
Available (again) by the dram in The Writing Club!
A collection of rare malts bottled by Ian McLeod, each Chieftain is signed by its rare malt manager. The one featured is a peated Jura, bottled under Anthony’s Choice 2016 collection, exclusively for Germany. It is distilled 2002 and bottled in 2016 after 13+ years in a hogshead #6433. At 58.2%, the palate is very vibrant with peat smoke, cream and citrus fruit notes. Ends with a long, smoky finish that makes one going back for more.
Face to Face Spirit Company, founded by Jack Weiber and Andrew Prezlow, bottles rare and old whisky in hand made bottles. These are sold only at whisky fairs, to customers in person. In the recent Limburg Whisky Fair, we acquired these 20 years old Rosebank (together with another 1975 Banff) from Jack Weiber and Andrew Prezlow, face to face. The bottle bears the names of the buyer/s, as well as the event and date which the bottle was handed over. Rosebank 20 years old (56.7%) is now available by dram in The Writing Club.
