An Exclusive limited edition 21 year old whisky for
Set your alarm clocks and get a good nights sleep tonight!
Because at 06.00 GMT on Friday 29th. November The Whisky Exchange are releasing their Exclusive limited edition 21 year old whisky for Black Friday!
Early birdness is a must though as previous editions have sold out VERY quickly, hence the alarm clocks and an early night!
This one-off single malt (limited to just 1,800 bottles) has been bottled exclusively for The Whisky Exchange from a handful of outstanding casks of whisky distilled at a secret distillery – and at a great value-for-money price.
“Founded in 1810, this mystery whisky-maker sits between Forres and Elgin in Speyside, and is known for making a light and elegant style of whisky which is rarely seen as a single malt.”
– The Whisky Exchange
Way more fun than any Black Friday event in the known universe(!) this one is a genuine never-to-be-repeated purchase of the year!
The Whisky Exchange has kindly sent me a sample to try (Thanks @WhiskyExchange!).
So, what did I think? Here are my tasting notes …
Tasting Notes – The Whisky Exchange Black Friday Malt 2019 (53.1%)
Distilled at … Glenburgie Distillery??? (Just guessing!)
Aged for 21 years
1,800 70cl bottles available – limited to two per customer.
Colour: Very pale straw.
Nose: This dram gives up it’s secrets quite slowly so patience is required!
Palate: Sweet tropical fruits with a nice hint of bitter seville oranges and chocolate. There’s also some creamy vanilla, cloves and a dusting of cinnamon spice – very nice!
Finish: Quite a dark, fiery finish but that lovely chocolate bitter orange continues coupled with tropical sweet loveliness. The sweet fruit gets stronger and more prevelant the longer you leave it in the glass – if you have that much will power!
Overall: This is a lovely dram, perfect for Christmas and the winter months after that. The tropical fruit is a happy reminder of sunnier days past and looking forward to sunnier days ahead.
