Lowland Single Grain Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: The Alistair Walker Whisky Company 70cl / 52.1%
A venerable 26-year-old single grain whisky distilled at the North British distillery in 1995. This was reracked into a Marsala hogshead cask for finishing before bottling in late 2021 by Alistair Walker for their Infrequent Flyers series.
North British grain whiskies are usually very impressive, and the Marsala finish should give this one an extra kiss of honeyed, exotic fruit. At a natural cask strength of 52.1% this will be a star and as ever with grain whiskies, it's amazing value.

Official Tasting Notes
Colour: Golden amber.
Nose: Super aldehydic - a huge hit of marzipan, followed by vanilla ice cream.
Palate: A dessert extravaganza. Praline and brown sugar. Coconut macaroons and sugared almonds. A little spicy kick at the back.
