A truly colossal bottling by The Single Malt’s of Scotland as part of their ‘Director’s Special’ range. Picked by the Director himself for its exceptional quality and character, showing classic distillery characteristics along with the influence from decades of maturation. Distilled at Caol Ila distillery and aged for 40 years in a single hogshead cask, with a yield of only 108 bottles. Aromatic smoke fills the nose with elderflower cordial and nettle. Notes of earl grey with a spoonful of honey, tarragon, chocolate mint and a beautiful herbaceous tone. Flavours of orange oil and honey mingle in harmony. Orange chocolate with a hint of chilli spice brings some depth to the whisky, while eucalyptus and elderflower give a more delicate feel. Hints of coal smoke balance the sweet and sour notes. The finish is long and rich with juicy tangerine juice and fragrant rosemary, with subtle smoke, like the dying embers of a beach fire.
