Glenalba 34yr Old Sherry Cask Finish

glenalba-34yrA whisky of rare distinction, crafted from a blend of only the finest 34 year old malt and grain whiskies. Then finished in carefully selected Sherry casks. Distilled in 1981.

Colour: Deep mahogany gold with glittering copper highlights.

Nose: Warm and inviting. Enticing aromas of baked apples and citrus fruits, marzipan and moist gingerbread flaunt themselves in an intoxicating infusion of unashamed luxury. Silky smooth and flawless, the hand of time has nurtured this noble spirit to perfection. Gentle whispers of old Oxford marmalade, aged in oloroso sherry, soft chewy liquorice and sweet mangoes complete this complex tapestry of delight.

Taste: Give this aged icon all the reverence it richly deserves by holding it long in the mouth. Immediately these hidden treasures are unlocked; caramelised pear, bitter chocolate, crushed almonds and freshly ground coffee enrich the tongue. However, this is quickly replaced by a vanilla sweetness, maple syrup, Bakewell tart and dark treacle. Pure harmony prevails. A kiss of cinnamon, Madeira cake and rich black cherries bring this masterpiece to a close.

Truly an aged icon never to be forgotten!
