Elixir Distillers is an independent bottler that released The Single Malts of Scotland range in 2002. This range consists of vintage single malt Scotch whiskies selected for their individual quality and character. Along with the classic single cask collection, the range includes the Director's Special series personally selected by Sukhinder Singh, as well as two small-batch collections: the accessible Reserve Casks and the more mature Marriage of Casks.

This single malt was distilled at Caol Ila distillery aged for more than 40 years in a single hogshead, yielding a total of 108 bottles.

Nose - Nettle and elderflower cordial with just a hint of aromatic smoke give a wonderful nod to the spirit of the incredibly well aged Islay malt. Notes of earl grey tea with a spoonful of cloudy honey rises from the glass complimented by a beautiful herbaceous tone with tarragon and chocolate mint.

Taste - Flavours of honey and orange oil create this wonderful dichotomy which continues to develop with time in the glass. Eucalyptus and elderflower create a very delicate feel and are contrasted and complimented by a richer, almost agave like sweetness. Orange citrus and chocolate with a hint of chilli spice creates more depth while a hint of coal smoke balances the sweet and sour notes.

Finish - Tarragon and rosemary develop along with a beautifully rich tangerine juice. The smoke is still there creating more length but it is very light like the dying embers of a beach fire.
