Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré à reflets verts.
  • Nose : vif, fin. Dominé par la fumée et la tourbe sèche, il s'ouvre sur le thym et la menthe poivré. Il évolue sur l'écorce d'orange et le zeste de citron. Sa relative sécheresse aromatique rappelle certains grands Riesling alsaciens. On penses également à une pommade à l'arnica, à la camomille ou encore au mimosa. Superbe.
  • Palate : ample, riche. Immédiatement fruitée et onctueuse, elle diffère assez nettement du nez. Construite sur une exceptionnelle amertume (agrumes confits), elle se développe sur la poire et la reine-claude pour revenir en force sur des notes de racine de gentiane.
  • Overall : longue, complexe, elle oscille entre notes de paille, de pomme de pin et d'autres plus sucrées d'ananas très mur et de coriandre. Elle se prolonge sur le menthol et la noix fraîche.
The brand

The brand

Up until the 1990s, only a 12 year old bottling was available on the market. But in 1994 a new bottle was introduced with a round and full shape, proudly harbouring within a 1979 vintage. This vintage expression pays testament to the vision of Berry Bros & Rudd, a company known for the quality of its cask selection, a process over which it takes particular care. This bold action brought into question the very concept of age, behind which the majority of single malts hide, and questioned consumers’ perception of the link between a whisky’s age and its aromatic maturity. However, although the year of distillation is important, it is the choice of casks (mostly Spanish wood) that has the biggest influence on the aromatic profile of its “vintage” years, each one with a different balance of spice, citrus and oak.
