This vintage Highland single malt was distilled in 1970 and bottled in 1989. The nose is musty and earthy with touches of dried fruits and hints of citrus and sulphur – likely because the cask was treated with paxarette (back when it was legal). The taste is fruity with notes of mango, apricot, subtle spices, and a touch of maltiness. The finish is long with lingering spices and touches of dried fruits. (November, 2017)
