ABOUT SINGLE MALTS OF SCOTLAND RESERVE CASKS
The Single Malts of Scotland Reserve Casks are a flavor-led exploration of fine single malts, bottled in small batches of three to ten casks. Each parcel of bottles shows the variety of styles and flavors found across Scotland, and the differences in angel’s share depending on region. Bottled at a consistent 48% with no added color and no chill-filtration, the Reserve Casks are intended to suit the palates of both novices and experts alike.
A small batch of five barrels from Glen Garioch Distillery have been used to create this Highland Single Malt, distilled in 2012 and aged for 10 years. This is a chocolatey dram with essences of rose water and peach.
No. of Casks: 5
Non Chill Filtered, No Colour Added
Nose: All sweet frangipane and buttery pastry up front, this dram has the nose of a beautifully flaky almond croissant. Rose water spritzes through the air, balancing the creamy sweetness with fresh floral notes. A heavier, earthier note - like wood after it rains - appears as a base note, but never overpowers.
Taste: The palate begins as soft, chewy caramels that open up to the white flesh of summer time peaches and wood spice. The buttery pastry on the nose has become more dense, like oat biscuits, on the palate.
Palate: This is a weighty dram, and finishes like milk chocolate melting in your mouth. Rose water reappears as a final touch.
