Connoisseurs Choice 1986
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.
Sweet; aromas of FOREST FRUITS and STEWED PEAR are followed by light notes of CINNAMON spice. An undertone of ORANGE PEEL develops alongside a hint of OAK.
Red fruits initially; STRAWBERRIES and RASPBERRIES leading to an undertone of sweet LIQUORICE. BAKED RED APPLE and CANDIED PEEL give way to traces of ROASTED NUT.
A medium-bodied and long finish; STRAWBERRY lingers throughout with a subtle BLACK PEPPER edge.
