North British 15 Year Old Single Grain Scotch Whisky - Mossburn Vintage Casks No 24.
The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of exceptional Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks.
Each numbered release will only ever yield a finite number of bottles.
This landmark distillery in Edinburgh first produced whisky in 1887 and nowadays uses three Coffey Still sets to produce single grain whisky,famously infusing the area with a distinctive smell of malted biscuits. Once aged, this fine spirit is a major constituent of many of the world’s most famous brands of Blended Scotch Whisky, but certainly also warrants a closer look on its own merits.
After fifteen years in American oak hogsheads this bottling shows light creamy vanilla and oak, fresh straw and a little ginger spice on the nose.
The palate shows delicate light oak, a touch of lemon and some mild pepperiness, settling into a softer sweetness on the finish.
