Celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year, ‘Connoisseurs Choice’ has received a make-over and it looks fantastic.
Aesthetically the packaging may have improved but the proof in the pudding is the contents, on this count you will not be disappointed.
This Strathmill 13 year old is a vatting of three casks all Refill Bourbon Barrels.
Distilled 2004 and bottled 15.3.2018.
Nose : Fresh and vibrant: banana, pineapple, coconut, pear, and green apple combine and transform into delicate floral layers. With time, a creamy butterscotch undertone develops.
Palate : A gentle mouth-warming pepper heat gently succumbs to deliciously juicy tropical fruits: watermelon, pineapple, and banana with highlights of lively orange zest twists.
Finish : Drying cocoa powder and lingering toasted oak balance the fruity sweetness.
