Connoisseurs Choice 1989
Created in 1968 by whisky visionary, George Urquhart, over the years this range has featured single malts from almost 100 Scottish distilleries. Comprising more than 2,000 individual bottlings, each Connoisseurs Choice tells its life story through its label: cask type, bottling date, strength, vintage and tasting note.
Rich fruitcake aromas initially with a hint of fresh mint and roasted walnut. Dark forest fruits develop and lead to soft vanilla with an undertone of white pepper.
Rich dark chocolate flavours combine with dried orange peel and a subtle vanilla pod edge. Roasted walnut notes come to the fore alongside smooth charred oak.
Medium-bodied with lingering nuances of roasted nuts.
