Cask No. 27.113
What a song and dance
Exclusive to the American Chapter of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society
One sniff opens the curtain to a fanfare of pineapple blasts, then a delicate, sweetly perfumed ballet dancer with candy floss hair leaps and twirls through an exotic garden of jasmine and rose; she is just adorable. On the palate; floral perfumes, citrus oils, tropical fruits, expensive wood and a lick of salt combine in an angelic choir of flavour harmonies – the finish has bittersweet, ice-lolly stick tingles that tease with memories of departed joys. Water is completely unnecessary, but a drop brings out the floral bouquet and candies on the nose and sweetens the taste.

About The Vaults Collection:
The Vaults Collection is a selection of the finest and rarest single cask, single malt whisky, set aside from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s most remarkable stocks over the years. They have been released from the depths of our treasure trove of casks, after decades of slow maturation and careful nurturing. The Vaults Collection represents the whisky lover’s dream: A chance to journey back into whisky history, including the opportunity to experience styles or distilleries that no longer exist. The Collection takes its name from the Society’s historical home at The Vaults in Leith, Scotland’s oldest commercial building in continuous use whose connection with the drinks world dates back to the 12th century. Each bottle has a specially designed label and is offered in a beautiful wooden box.
