Prometheus 30 Year Old
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: The Glasgow Distillery Company 70cl / 51.8%
This is the 4th bottling in the Prometheus Series, and again it is a stunning Speyside sherry matured whisky. Unlike the other previous releases, we can actually reveal that this was distilled at the Macallan distillery, and this 30-year-old whisky shares a very similar flavour profile to the previous 28-year-old Prometheus but with less smoke on the palate and finish...
This whisky was distilled in 1988 and matured in a single sherry butt for 30 years before being bottled at 51.8% with a yield of just 544 bottles.
This bottle is accompanied by a heavyweight metal stopper, an individually numbered booklet and presented in a high-quality piano finish box.
Nose: Toffee and raisin with toasted spice. Hints of dark chocolate and dried orange zest against a backdrop of orchard fruit and roasted barley.
Palate: Velvety dark chocolate and vanilla biscuit open up the palate, leading to luxurious orange marmalade, spicy fruit cake and subtle hints of walnut.
Finish: Long dry finish with a lingering sweet smokiness. Perfectly balanced with hints of toasted oats, shortbread biscuit and spice.
