Description

In the year this whisky was distilled Germany won the football World Cup and the highest sale of music cassettes was recorded in the USA with 442 million – a bygone era, and we aren’t referring to Germany winning the World Cup! The very elegant aroma evoked the scent of blossoming gorse bushes in a pine forest. A rich and luscious mouthfeel, still fresh and vibrant, reminded us of a sweet South African wine called constantia, established in 1685. It does not do it justice but imagine an elderflower gin and tonic garnished with lemon. No dilution is necessary, however if you so wish the scent was that of a sweet perfume from the olden days, and a classic gin fizz on the palate.
