Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré à reflets verts.
  • Nose : riche, original. Chaque note de la palette aromatique est à son apogée et à aucun moment on ne sent de fléchissement. Ce Mosstowie est à la fois profondément ancré dans le sol et en même temps d’une épure magnifique. Printanier et floral à souhait il évoque une corne d’abondance. Ses fruits sont juteux et exotiques (banane mûre). Une magnifique note d’anis étoilée vient couronner le tout. Le verre vide respire d’agréables notes de barbapapa.
  • Palate : ne le cédant en rien au nez, elle ajoute encore un supplément d’âme. Spirituelle, elle diffuse des notes d’encens, de cuir et de cire. Généreuse, elle offre des fruits mûrs, des épices nobles et des fleurs capiteuses. Avec beaucoup de pureté, elle va à l’essentiel. Equilibre, fraicheur, précision, élégance sont quelques mots lâchés.
  • Overall : longue, tendre. Avec toujours autant de délicatesse et d’originalité herbacée, ses tonalités aquatiques (nénuphar) sont une source perpétuelle d’enchantement. La classe naturelle de cette version éclate au grand jour. A cet instant, l’enthousiasme que nous avions ressenti un soir d’hiver à la dégustation de ce single malt ressurgit.
The brand

The brand

In 1964, the Miltonduff distillery installed a pair of Lomond-style stills which it used to produce a single malt called Mosstowie up until 1981. This “ephemeral” single malt never had an official bottling. Only a handful of casks, scattered here and there, are still available, most notably from Gordon & MacPhail and Signatory Vintage. A malt that is more than rare!

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.
