No. 8 - Vintage Cask Selection - Dufftown 2008
The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of Single Malt 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. While this means that we can never replicate the particular character of this Single Malt, it also off ers an opportunity to sample what we believe to be an exceptional example of the whisky made by one of Scotland’s most distinguished distilleries.
Built in the 1890’s Duff town is one of the few distilleries where the spirit stills are larger than the wash stills and it produces a weighty spirit with a malt-led character. The distillery is fed by the Dullan, a tributary of the Fiddich River.
Aged for ten years in Hogsheads, this whisky has developed a zesty nose with notes of honey and vanilla.
The palate brings through nut and berry fl avours with a touch of spice and malt in the finish.
