Crafted to honour the act of saving Scotland’s King in 1263, this expression combines six specially selected casks containing spirit of perfect maturity. Whiskies matured in ex-bourbon casks, Matusalem oloroso sherry wood, Madeira barrels, Marsala casks, port pipes and Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques are brought together in perfect harmony. Each cask gives its own flavour notes, delivering a unique complex single malt whisky revered by connoisseurs.

Vital Stats: 40% ABV (80 proof), no age statement, 100% malted barley

Appearance: Reddish-brown, deep amber with bright copper and emerald on the periphery. Thick, strong legs that retreat very slowly.

Nose: Lightly floral and surprisingly restrained. Somewhat buttery and nutty, with subtle fruit notes.

Palate: Thin mouthfeel reminiscent of white wine vinegar. Sweet and bitter in relatively equal measure. Dry. Load of somewhat bitter raisin in the initial tasting. Toffee sweetness, tart cherry, blueberry preserves, bittersweet chocolate, salted almond butter, marmalade, baked clove, overripe raspberries. Exceptionally long yet quite gentle finish, glowing in the rear of the mouth and back of the throat. Spice showing up very late in the finish leaving notes of dark chocolate cake and raspberry ganache.

Country: Scotland

從1839年開始,大摩酒廠開始釀造最優異的單一純麥威士忌。酒廠坐落於Cromarty海灣北岸,屬於蘇格蘭高地。地理位置的優異讓大摩擁有得天獨厚的自然元素。從面對酒廠湖泊的乾淨水源,到海岸邊Black Isle富饒土地上產出的黃金大麥,讓大摩可以汲取大自然中最豐富的釀酒材料。靠近海平面的海拔高度也非常重要,夾帶著鹽份的海風徐徐吹來,包覆著鹽份的空氣、提供了酒窖內熟成威士忌絕佳的條件。

將多樣酒桶中熟成的酒完美的融合,最後產出這樣豪華款的單一純麥威士忌。來自陳年且富有香氣的Oloroso雪莉酒桶和Madeira酒桶中的杏仁香氣、濃厚的柑橘果香;由Port和Marsala木桶中所帶來的野莓、李子香氣;來自陳年波本酒桶溫和的香草味、太妃糖;來自Cabernet Sauvignon酒桶的成熟紅色果子的氣味。複雜、多層次且極富特色的氣味是鑑賞家的最愛。
