Master of Malt has officially released … (insert big fanfare here) … The World’s Oldest Whisky Liqueur made with whisky aged for a staggering 55 years!
This rare, limited edition liqueur was created with single malt drinkers in mind and rather than masking the core whisky with sweetness, just a little natural sugar and spices were added to accentuate the rich, sherried flavours and malt notes.
The whisky was sourced from one of Scotland’s most legendary distilleries and it was aged for 55 years in sherry casks, resulting in a rich palate redolent of calves leather, sultanas and mahogany.
It was then bottled non-chill-filtered and not diluted in any way save for the addition of the above mentioned natural sugar and spices.
Whiskies of this age and rarity command price tags of several thousands of pounds and it is extraordinary to see one used to make a whisky liqueur!
(p.s. you can stop the fanfare now.)
