Pale gold in colour and nicely packaged up in a metal tube, gives a feeling of quality that cardboard can’t. Rich aromas on opening the bottle just get better when poured and savoured, lightly smoky with plump sultanas, apricot jam, vanilla and a biscuit like malty smell.

This whisky has a thick creamy mouth coating body to it, a sweet profile containing the favours of oaty hobnob biscuits, apricots, almonds, vanilla and cinnamon. Quite exotic, but in no way unusual for a malt whisky.

The high alcohol content and full body ensures the finish is satisfyingly long with plenty of drying flavour development of the fruit, nuts and malt evident on the palate. The balance present in this whisky is superb, it might not stand out anywhere in particular, but the whole experience is one of stylish quality.

This is a great malt, I agree. I've enjoyed all the batches I tried.

I disagree regarding the packaging. Cardboard would reduce weight and lower the carbon footprint of shipping. While I admit it is easier to transport a bottle in a suitcase if it is in metal, the only feeling of quality that is important to me is what is IN the bottle.

For example the 2007 special edition of the Amrut CS was in cardboard and is excellent. Subsequent batches were in metal and are neither better or worse.

Plus it's ugly.

Solid whisky though.

@Uisgebetha your review does this great whisky justice. I really love this whisky, such a seductive 50%. Certainly in my top all time world whisk(e)y category. I must also agree with my friendly board members - the tin container has got to go.
