Bottler: Signatory Vintage
Brand: Signatory Vintage
Selection: Luxembourg Whisky Society
ABV: 44.9% ABV
Age: 29 Years
Nose: Buttery biscuits, sweet honey, toffee. Fresh baked bread, pepper.
Taste: Thin on the palate, lots of apple, pepper, vanilla bean. Doughy. A little heat, not bad. Pepper presence grows a bit with time.
Finish: Medium in length, some heat. Apples, fresh baked bread, pepper and honey. The tastes it leaves are nice, but not super complex.
Overall: I’d bet anything this is a Compass Box Great King Street but it feels a bit hotter than those normally are. I’ll guess scotch, 7-11 years, 45-49% ABV, mostly bourbon maturation. Reminds me a lot of the same young waxy profile as clynelish,glenturret,dailuaine, etc. This was revealed to me to be a 29yr Glenturret, aged in bourbon casks, at 44.9% ABV. So I got the maturation, came sort of close on the distiller, and was sort of close on the proof. Womp, better luck next time.
Thanks for reading!
