A 27 year old single malt from the Allt-á-Bhainne Distillery, independently bottled by Hunter Laing as part of the Old Malt Cask series. This one aged in a refill hogshead from May 1992 to October 2019, and was then bottled up at 50% ABV with an outturn of only 256 bottles.
Nose: Juicy barley and ripe green fruit, with a touch of marmalade.
Palate: Still bright with tangy fruit, now rhubarb and lemon. Subtly grassy and herbal with basil and mint.
Finish: Vanilla pod sweetness sticks around.
