A Speyside Malt, distilled in 2002 and bottled in 2014.
The nose is attractively barley based and sweet with suggestions of maple syrup and summer fruit.
Palatewise it is still sweet, round and full of chewy cereal flavours and interesting spices tempered with a sprinkle of late salt, all leading to a finish which rolls all those characteristics into one warming melange.
Fred Laing, our Director of Malts, believes that the region where the barley grows and the spirit is distilled imparts unique characteristics to our whisky. This, he calls, the whisky’s “Provenance”, and so our range of Small Batch, often Single Cask bottlings, from an impressive portfolio of Scotland’s Distilleries is aptly named. Ranging from the “Young & Feisty” bottlings, from exceptional Distilleries such as Bunnahabhain and Talisker, to aged expressions such as the unlucky-for-some 13 Years Old Caol Ila, the Provenance range is without colouring or chill-filtration and bottled at high alcohol strength, typically 46%.
