All about making whisky
Remarkably well-balanced, this 2003 vintage Diamond dazzles and shines in its classic beauty. While spices play a crucial role in forming the backbone underpinning the progression of its aromatic and gustatory palette, fruit (whether fresh, exotic or dried), primarily heady florals and chocolatey, mineral, root-based and earthy notes all combine to lend this version incredible charm and nuance. Its insatiable and winding, twisting finish create an apex that explodes in a thousand different colours and emotions.
Profile: the nose is rich and beautifully classical. It wavers between notes of fruit, roasted elements and heady florals before finally emerging as very spicy indeed. Slightly earthy, the palate is also fruity and juicy (pear). The end of the palate is remarkably well-balanced.

Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.
