Tasting note

  • Appearance : or vif.
  • Nose : équilibré, gourmand. Son fruité est un pur délice, il fait preuve à la fois d’exotisme (ananas, litchi) et de vivacité (citron, pamplemousse rose). Son fin boisé côtoie au plus près des épices d’une grande douceur (cannelle, cardamome, muscade). Des fleurs capiteuses (concrète d’iris, rose), de la noix de coco et du miel de lavande recouvrent progressivement la palette aromatique.
  • Palate : ample, onctueuse. Finement cacaotée, elle évoque les champs d’orge balayés par un vent léger. Au lointain, on entend le ressac de la mer. l’air est chargé de particules salées. Des fruits mûrs (pomme, coing) alimentent et nourrissent le milieu de bouche. Elle évolue sur des notes plus terreuses de sous-bois et de champignons.
  • Overall : douce, crémeuse. Particulièrement herbacée (foin coupé, malt vert), elle fait preuve de beaucoup de fraîcheur et de jeunesse d’esprit. Fringante, elle devient au fur et à mesure vanillée, épicée (gingembre), fruitée (abricot, pêche blanche) et florale (buis, rose ancienne). La rétro olfaction est miellée (acacia, bruyère) et le verre vide est balsamique (cèdre) et légèrement médicinal (onguent).
The brand

Merchant

Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

Baptised ‘Artist’, this new range makes no bones about proclaiming its identity. Cosmopolitan and contemporary, it draws its inspiration from the style that gave the Italian bottlings of the 60s and 70s their cult following. From the choice of whiskies (distillery, ageing process, age, strength, bottling procedure) to the design of the bottle and choice of label, every detail has been carefully considered. This range offers a fine presentation of both the whiskies and the artist whose works have been selected for the back labels.
