Tasting Notes

We imagined lying on grass, looking dreamily towards the blue sky where a few fluffy white clouds floated effortlessly. The palate was amazingly elegant, with a lovely fizz like a fresh bellini cocktail made with ripe, juicy white peaches and prosecco. With a tiny drop of water, the scent of clotted cream fudge, custard creams, banana parfait and sweet tangerines graced the room. To taste, lemon powder puffs with plenty of double cream, lemon curd and icing sugar. At 26 years of age, we combined selected casks from the same distillery. We then returned the single malt into a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.

About The Vaults Collection

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.
