Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets ambrés
  • Nose : chaud, gourmand. D’un côté la pomme au four nappée de chocolat noir, de vanille ou de réglisse, c’est selon. De l’autre, les épices douces (cannelle, muscade, paprika) et les zestes d’agrumes (mandarine). Puis les fruits secs (datte, raisin) et les fleurs (genêt, mimosa) accentuent son caractère capiteux.
  • Palate : riche, profonde. Très différente du nez, elle se montre plus incisive. Végétale (malt vert), empyreumatique (cyprée, laurier), elle prend de la hauteur pour devenir florale (lilas mauve). Des notes d’encaustique, de noix et de cappuccino rehaussées d’un joli rancio (cerise à l’eau-de-vie) soulignent l’influence du sherry. Elle se prolonge sur les tomates et les fleurs séchées.
  • Overall : longue, tendre. Sa texture rappelle le sable fin qui file entre les doigts. Chaleureuse, elle revient sur les épices (curry, anis étoilé), les agrumes confits (citron) et l’orge maltée. Elle fait la queue de paon sur le chocolat noir et le miel de bruyère.
The brand

The brand

Up until the 1990s, only a 12 year old bottling was available on the market. But in 1994 a new bottle was introduced with a round and full shape, proudly harbouring within a 1979 vintage. This vintage expression pays testament to the vision of Berry Bros & Rudd, a company known for the quality of its cask selection, a process over which it takes particular care. This bold action brought into question the very concept of age, behind which the majority of single malts hide, and questioned consumers’ perception of the link between a whisky’s age and its aromatic maturity. However, although the year of distillation is important, it is the choice of casks (mostly Spanish wood) that has the biggest influence on the aromatic profile of its “vintage” years, each one with a different balance of spice, citrus and oak.
