Elixir Distillers 10 Year Old Blair Athol Parcel No. 6 2011
A batch of six hogsheads from Blair Athol distillery has been used to create this single malt, distilled in 2011 and aged for more than 10 years. This dram is loaded with tropical and summer fruits, along with a patisserie sweetness and shadows of earthiness.
A jar of caster sugar, infusing with split vanilla pods. Iced buns, warm pineapple jam and strawberry coulis appear, with a hint of Gala apples.
Tropical fruit notes abound, with passionfruit and pineapple pâte de fruits. The buns from the nose emerge as Danish pastries, covered with pieces of dried mango, followed by a drizzling of spicy honey.
A long, sweet, tropical finish, accented with a touch of ear thiness and a dusting of garam masala.
