The first release in this series of just 1,000 bottles of this ultra-rare grain whisky from a closed distillery, is also the oldest Carsebridge ever bottled. A fascinating whisky, it’s an unique, sophisticated and subtle old single grain that rewards patient study.
Deep gold colour.
Delicate, light and balanced nose of a very old grain.
Medium. Thick textured.
A rich texture, voluptuous mouthfeel and a big, soft, sweet, then gently spicy taste.
Light, volatile, and longer than expected.
Age: 48 Years Old, distilled in 1970
Strength: 43.2% ABV
Deep amber to rich, antique gold.
Delicate and fragile. Shy, then rich and tart. Sweet, floral notes of dried flowers and oil, in a dusty oak drawer. Like a bowl of extremely ripe fruit left in the sunshine; plum, peach and red apple. Hints of sawn oak, mint and white chocolate truffle. Unexpectedly light and balanced throughout.
A voluptuous mouthfeel and a big, soft, sweet taste, with juicy hints of apple, then oak shavings and gentle spice that together evoke an artist’s studio. A soft, fleeting and subtle floral note.
Light, volatile, and longer than expected. Discreet spice; light wood, grape stems, raisins and subtly, more oiled wood.
