This exquisite spirit is handcrafted from rare whiskies produced only in distilleries that operated during the reign of King George V, including several which no longer exist. The blend also features prized Islay malts from the Port Ellen distillery, founded in the 1820s, the stills of which are no longer operational. Tasting notes Nose: Initial aromas as of profound smokiness, followed by sweet fresh fruit such as apples and bananas, and malt characteristics; developing into rich dried fruit (raisins, figs, cinnamon) and spicy complexity. Palate: Powerful, complex and rich, yet exceptionally smooth. Finish: Rich, mouth-warming and lingering peaty finish. 43% Alc./Vol.
