Whisky Tasting Notes

Colour: Natural; a beautiful dark gold, with nice, slow tears in the glass.

Nose: A very full flavoured nose, layers of brown sugar and caramel, enhanced with figs and dates, red stewed fruit, and some cinnamon spice as well. The peat arrives in a delicate, refined way, working together well with the sweetness from the PX cask. After allowing for some breathing time, there are dark forest fruits, like blackcurrants and raspberries.

Palate: When you take a sip, the peat comes into greater focus, arriving in waves which alternate with sweet, fresh fruit. The mouthfeel is ever so slightly drying, bringing on that pleasant sensation of raspberry juice in your mouth. Even at 50% the alcohol is well integrated, giving so much room for all the refined elements coming in.

Finish: A juicy, smooth finish, medium long, prolonging the red fruit and adding an extra note of dark chocolate.

About this collaboration 

This is Roger Whisky Company's first independent bottling. It's also the first edition of a special collaboration between Roger and his good friend Torsten of Scotch & Tattoos. This particular single malt scotch whisky is a 12 year old single Caol Ila cask finished in a first-fill Pedro Ximenez octave. Torsten’s twin bottling is it’s sister cask finished in a first-fill Oloroso octave.
