Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré soutenu.
  • Nose : frais, élégant. Le premier nez révèle une note d’orge verte et printanière dans laquelle viennent s’enchevêtrer des fruits exotiques (ananas, banane). Crémeux et vanillé, il devient au fur et à mesure médicinal (camphre), salin et épicé (curry, muscade). Complexe, il évolue sur des fleurs capiteuses (mimosa) et sur des agrumes confits (citron). La couleur jaune ensoleille la palette aromatique.
  • Palate : ferme, tonique. Ses contours élégants révèlent une architecture élancée et résolument tournée vers le haut. L’acidité des fruits frais qu’elle délivre généreusement (poire, brugnon, ananas), procure au milieu de bouche beaucoup de présence et de minéralité. Des notes bleutées d’ardoise viennent enrichir la palette chromatique. Au fur et à mesure, elle gagne en onctuosité et en gourmandise (brioche, amande).
  • Overall : longue, interminable. L’orge effectue un come-back plein de fraîcheur. Une fine couche de zan recouvre les fruits (ananas), qui reviennent eux aussi à la surface de la palette gustative. La rétro-olfaction est safranée et chocolatée. Le verre vide nous emmène dans un jardin parfumé par l’odeur du jasmin, des jonquilles et des jacinthes.
The brand

The brand

This single malt is produced in limited quantities, using the finest ingredients right from the start of the production process through to its choice of the famous barley varieties Golden Promise and Optic. Its long fermentation and slow distillation result in a rich and concentrated distillate, of which only 16% is selected for maturation in casks of a rare quality, with the rest being run off as feints and foreshots. Its single malt is then aged, wholly or partially, in casks that have previously contained sherry. In fact, Macallan has even acquired various bodegas in Andalucia to guarantee this “tailored” maturation. Find out more

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.
