Tasting note

  • Appearance : or pâle.
  • Nose : exubérant et en même temps remarquable de précision. Tout d’abord, les fruits exotiques (passion), les fleurs (violette, lavande) accompagnent une tourbe médicinale et marine. Il évolue avec élégance sur l’orge maltée, les embruns et les agrumes confits (citron, pamplemousse). La bouillie d’orge et le beurre salé soulignent son caractère crémeux. Les fleurs sont devenues blanches (lilas, muguet).
  • Palate : ample, délicate. Persuasive, raffinée, la tourbe enrobe le palais. Elle se décompose progressivement en notes de terre, d’épices (cannelle) et de réglisse. Le milieu de bouche reprend avec suavité l’exotisme du nez (passion, ananas) en y ajoutant des fruits noirs à la manière d’un pure pot still irlandais (cassis) et de la verveine.
  • Overall : longue, aérienne et florale (pivoine, jasmin). En filigrane, la tourbe sert de fil rouge. Elle dévoile au fur et à mesure des fruits confits (abricots, nectarine), de la vanille, de la noix de coco et des notes végétales (trèfle, mâche). Impressionnant, le verre vide est cendré, fumé, tourbé et épicé (badiane, muscade).
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

The Prestonfield range of whiskies is without doubt one of the most well-known among connoisseurs, and yet few people are aware of its origins. Created in the 1980s by the Symington brothers, the famous label with the drawing of the Prestonfield Hotel is now available exclusively through La Maison du Whisky. The whiskies selected for this range have always been some of the best but, from 2000, the decision was made to bottle them all at cask strength from a single cask. Almost exclusively single malts, these whiskies are extremely sought after, and often appear at the major auctions. Find out more
