Created in 1968 by whisky visionary, ‘Mr George’ Urquhart, the Connoisseurs Choice range has featured more than 2,000 bottlings from almost 100 Scottish distilleries. Each Connoisseurs Choice whisky’s story is told through its label: cask type, bottling date, strength, vintage and tasting note.

Always non‐chill‐filtered, these rare single cask and small batch expressions have been created by Gordon & MacPhail’s unique expertise in matching spirit to oak casks, handed down through four generations of the same family.

This single malt from Islay has been finished in Sassicaia Casks (2 years) and helps to add to this liquid’s dark golden appearance. This particular batch has an outrun of only 3550 bottles.

Nose: dried figs with sweet cured meats and cinnamon spice. Fudge and milk chocolate notes lead to rich smoke.

Taste: redcurrant gives way to subtle black pepper. Red apple comes to the fore alongside lemon peel and toasted oak.

Finish: medium bodied with pepper, forest fruits and lingering smoke.
