The magnificence of this whisky’s aromatic palette will make you want to draw the nosing out as long as possible in case you never get to experience these wonderful aromas again. But fear not!

- Appearance : deep gold
- Nose : full-bodied, ethereal. Great finesse and subtlety! Lemon zest gives the initial nose just the vivacity it needs to be deemed superb. Following close after lie fresh walnuts, star anise, exotic fruits (pineapple), heady florals (lily), aromatic herbs (vervain, sage) and a plethora of other fragrances... all just waiting to be discovered.
- Palate : delicate, nuanced. The attack on the palate goes even further than the nose. Not only are the aromas from the nose re-transcribed with masterful precision, but it also adds black fruit (blackcurrants, blackberries), vanilla, a fine dusting of soot and mineral notes of slate and sandstone. Later, its fruitiness is further enriched by melon, quince and Golden Delicious apples. The end of the palate is spicy, almost hot (Cayenne).
- Overall : long, taut. The finish bites into the flesh of its fruit aromas. Some have been transformed into honey or jam, others, on the other hand, have remained crunchy and firm. The very end of the palate is breathtakingly beautiful. Flooded with sunshine, the retro-nasal olfaction brings us close enough to touch the fruits still on the tree. The empty glass is ample, ethereal, delicate and nuanced.
- The brand
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 Cask Strength Collection of single malt and single grain whiskies is without doubt one of the most appreciated ranges. Each release is bottled undiluted, unchillfiltered and usually consists of a single cask. To help the consumer appreciate their whisky at more than a purely aromatic and gustatory level, Signatory Vintage takes care to display on each label, with great precision, the region of production, the date of distillation and bottling, the type of cask used, its number and the number of bottles of the same nectar that were produced. This range thus offers some fascinating facts, in addition to exceptional quality!
