"A Rare Find" - Banff Single Malt Scotch Whisky Aged Over 42 Years
Built by James McKilligan & Co. in 1824. The history of the Banff distillery is a very hard one. The distillery had many fires and was bombed in World War 2. Eventually the distillery was mothballed in 1983, and the last warehouse was destroyed by a fire in 1991. Today the whole distillery is demolished and aged bottlings are few and far between. Now that nature is slowly reclaiming the last few standing walls on site, it might be interesting to get yourself a bottle or sample to enjoy the last few drops.
Palate: Fresh and relatively creamy, a nice combination of sweetness, soft bitterness and spices. Some lemon zest, a little herbal liqueur and chilli pepper. Hints of dried fruits, chocolate and vanilla.
Finish: Long; with sweet vanilla growing stronger besides the grassy, drier notes.
Overall: Excellent Banff, exemplary yet slightly more rounded than other expressions, thanks to the soft vanilla notes and fruits. But this experience comes at a price
