Tasting Notes by Jim McEwan, head distiller;
Character: An elegant, composed and stylishly vibrant spirit that showcases the absolute finesse, purity, definition and elegance of organically grown barley.
Colour: Late summer barley. Nose: Opens on a light almond note with a twist of candied lemon. Followed by the magical aromatics of toasted barley, floral and fruit notes with a hint of lemon honey intermingling beautifully. Toffee sweetness comes from American oak cask and as the spirit opens little drifts of succulent papaya, melon and kiwi can be found. Palate: The texture is sensational, the spirit gliding over the palate like warm syrup. The taste buds love the purity and the sensational clarity of flavours being presented. A real sweetness on the front palate, barley sugar, honey almonds, green jelly beans, pear drops all splashed with fresh lemons and balanced by the crispness of malted barley.
Finish: An intensity and definition of flavour that is unparalleled. Incredibly fresh giving an unforgettable palate experience that leaves the taste buds tingling and overwhelmed.
Mood: Mischievous. Coy, flirtatious, Lolita. A breast-surging, bodice ripper: breathlessly virtuous. Creamy is an understatement because there is no other expression as creamy as this expression. And there is that ever present cereal that provides a beautiful mouthfeel.
This is a non-existent Limited-Edition Expression bottled many years ago. Hence, a certain amount of the liquid may have given itself up as the "Angels Share," and the cork for such old expressions has the propensity to break which is very normal due to this phenomenon. Thus, the drinker must practice due diligence when opening this liquid gold bottle.
It seems that the Angels really had a good dram amongst themselves because the "Angels Share" for this single bottle expression is quite a fair bit, and the selling price of this bottle has been adjusted accordingly.
Take note that these expressions are sold in "as is" condition due to their age.
