The Whisky Library's private bottle
Sutherland HK Edition bottled by Thompson Brothers!!(You should be able to recognise which distillery the kitten represents.)On the nose, you can feel this is older, there are additional aromas such as bicycle inner tube, linseed oil, acacia gum, pine cone smoke, barbecue, leatherette (a.k.a. leather for vegans)… With water: top notch, perfect age, perfect spirit, perfect cask. Mouth: perfect,not extremely emblematic but perfect. Smoked tangerines, plasticine, rubber and leather, charcoal, wormwood and even absinth (a drop), green bananas… With water: oils. Funnily enough, we’re geared towards Ben Nevis, somehow. Finish: medium to long, waxier, almondy, with citrons in the aftertaste. Love citrons, they’ll soon be able to grow them, up there in… Sutherland.
