Description

Every so often, the Society is offered up small parcels of very rare whisky. In this case, we are proudly releasing Cask 72.78 Double plus good, a 34 year old single cask from distillery 72 in the Juicy, Oak & Vanilla flavour profile. As well as being some of the oldest stocks we’ll see this year, it’s also some of the most awarded having taken out Gold Medal at the Luxury Masters Competition 2019. Limit of one bottle per Member.

It’s the flowers that strike first. Whole baskets of them. Then dried apricot, mixed dried fruits in a cake mix, an old dessert wine such as long-aged, sweet Loire Chenin. Some molten custard creams from a warm pocket, a wee nibble of fresh oak and then pure mango juice. Water brings huge waves of flavour. Abundant tropical fruits, tonka beans, fruit salad in syrup, booze macerated vanilla pods and assorted dried berry fruits. The embodiment of ‘syrupy’. It arrives in the mouth like ancient cognac – rancio-laden and spruced with waxes and polish. Then wee notes of raspberry jam, peach, apple, pineapple and other fresh fruits. Vanilla cheesecake with a leafy herbal freshness to balance it out. With water it becomes supremely mellow and mouth coating. Molten brown sugar, watermelon and lime curds. Seductive and beautiful to the end.
