Introducing a Fresh Selection of Single Grain Whiskies Crafted by the Angus Dundee Company, recognized for their ownership of Glencadam and Tomintoul distilleries. This particular whisky is meticulously fashioned using the Patent Still technique, an approach that involves continuous distillation in a column still, enabling a consistent production process. The blend incorporates a variety of grains: unmalted wheat for a bready texture and body, corn and maize for sweetness, rye for a touch of spice, and a dash of malted barley for added complexity. The grains undergo a steam pressure cooking system, optimizing the extraction of sugars from the cereals, resulting in a delightful and flavorful end product.
The aroma of this whisky unveils a tapestry of cereal sweetness, accompanied by floral nuances and a hint of vanilla, along with inviting hints of honey and maple. The palate is gentle and airy, showcasing a velvety vanilla essence intertwined with creamy floral undertones. The finish, although short-lived, beckons with its alluring and irresistible quality. Whether savored as a laid-back sipper or utilized as a base for home blends and cocktails, this whisky fits the bill perfectly.
A Whisky of Effortless Elegance
This offering from Angus Dundee embodies a light, approachable demeanor while maintaining its distinctive flavors. Despite its admittedly nostalgic 1980s presentation, it stands as an attractively age-stated and value-driven opportunity to experience the world of grain whisky. The quality is undeniable, a sentiment echoed by Mark Davidson, our esteemed Edinburgh shop manager, who has incorporated it into countless educational tastings. As for its origin distillery, that remains a mystery.
