WHITE PAWN - A2
Release date: 3rd May 2019
The color of this Single Malt has been developed over more than 30 years in a American oak cask and it appears with a beautiful yellow color almost like an old Sauternes.
The nose is very fruity with notes of citrus, coconut, caramel and lots of vanilla. After a few minutes in the glass more exotic fruit characters like pineapples and banana are coming through.
A very soft and sweet Speyside Single Malt with notes of wood after many years in cask. The Cask Strength of 51.4% alcohol is not really something you will notice. The whisky is pleasant on the palate and it is really a classic Speyside with lots of honey aromas and sweetness from the wood.
The finish is long and pleasant with slightly spicy aromas with malty aromas and white peppers. What a dram! It's so "old-school-great" that all your senses will call for another straight away.
There is history in the bottles
Scottish history has always been about great battles, powerful Kings and Queens, cunning moves, and stunning castles. It is about noble clansmen and brutal conquerors, religious domination by fanatical bishops, but also about strategic thinkers and philosophers.
