The upstart bottler, The Perfect Fifth, is sourcing some truly unusual and rare barrels for their inugural release. An unexpected addition to the line up of ultra-premium whiskies released by the new bottler, this old malt from the “other” Campbeltown distillery is not to be ignored. Packaged in a unique “wooden barrel case It achieved “Liquid Gold Award” status and 94 points from the preeminent whisky critic, Jim Murray. Here are his impressions, Nose: Playful, teasing smoke offers an unlikely sharpness to the already busy barley. For its big age, this malt is alive and kicking; brilliant! Taste: Sublime depth to the barley which is at its juiciest and glows as the cocoa notes bring out the best of the light smoke. Finish: A bitter-sweet finale with the phenols swirling around and spices a-buzzing. No signs of tiredness at all as the barley still plays a big part while the oak offers both cocoa and a proud skeleton on which all else hangs. Balance: Just adore that chocolate and light peat mix.
