Anecdotes are our short whisky anthology stories. They are one-off and unique, from rare finds we come across through our whisky journey. When a fabulous batch of 4 casks of a very intriguing blended malt landed in our warehouse, we chose 2 casks for vatting our first Anecdote. This bottle is the continuation of Anecdote 1, with 2 Hogsheads spending another 8 months in 3 Koval barrels that hosted Glentauchers 23 YO previously.
This blended malt contains 17% Laphroaig, 20% HIghland Park and the rest of 63% of the malts come from Speyside's famous distilleries. It's been a good long marriage of 24 years in bourbon barrels that provides fruitiness, a touch of maritime notes and subtle peat in one perfect dram.
This whisky has been dividing experts' opinions! You can read the review by Serge Valentin from Whiskyfun and Jason Julier from Malt-Review.com. We are quite happy with this since it shows that our first Anecdote is truely unconventional.
Nose: A delicate fruit salad with notes of dried apricots, custard, burnt cane sugar and a touch of sweet smoke.
Palate: Croissants, slightly salted fudge, apricot jam, oranges, plums and fried sugar.
Finish: Tinned pears, cornflakes and slightly smoky sweetness.
