Official SMWS Panel Tasting Notes:
“A glorious and opulent initial aroma of Juicy Fruit chewing gum, residual fruit salad juices, mandarin liqueur and banana ice cream. The lemon curd drizzled over quivering tropical fruits, pineapple jelly and olive oil mixed with sugar syrup. Bountiful, generous and oozing fruity class! Reduction brought us a more fragrant and floral edge with dried exotic fruit chunks, mixed fruit teas, matcha, lemon peel, dried papaya and marmalade with coriander seed.
The neat palate was initially rich with vanilla custard and strawberry coulis, then raspberry cordial, lime syrup, gooseberry jam, burlap, heather honey, soft waxes and lightly hoppy IPA. Water added a streak of beeswax, herbal cough syrup, custard creams, white stout beer and green pepper. Magnifique!”
*The Vaults Collection is a selection of the finest and rarest single cask, single malt whisky, set aside from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s most remarkable stocks over the years. They have been released from the depths of our treasure trove of casks, after decades of slow maturation and careful nurturing. The Vaults Collection represents the whisky lover’s dream: A chance to journey back into whisky history, including the opportunity to experience styles or distilleries that no longer exist. The Collection takes its name from the Society’s historical home at The Vaults in Leith, Scotland’s oldest commercial building in continuous use whose connection with the drinks world dates back to the 12th century. Each bottle has a specially designed label and is offered in a beautiful wooden box.
