ACCOLADES:

94.5 POINTS - 2014 - Jim Murray Whisky Bible

93.5 POINTS - 2012 - Jim Murray Whisky Bible

TASTING NOTES:

NOSE: Distinctly confidant liquorice-bourbon notes with near perfect bitter-sweet balance; burnt honeycomb and toffee also abound.

PALATE: Outstanding richness and sheen to the enormous barley-oak sweetness; again there is a big bourbony cut to the cloth with all the liquorice and molassed sugar normally associated; but the barley adds that extra dimension.

FINISH: Long, wonderfully layered oak offering variations of a sweet dry theme; a touch silky with some cream toffee at the death.

DISTILLING:

It is estimated that 1 year of aging in Bangalore = 3 years in Scotland.
