A. D. Rattray was founded in 1868. Owned by industry legend Tim Morrison, the firm has been rebuilt into a top-notch independent bottler.
This 8-Year-Old Single Malt was aged in a sherry cask and bottled at the daunting level of 64.9%! The judicious addition of small amounts of water will open this Single Malt on the nose and palate.
Single Malting suggests: “Just had to water this, and hey presto just like magic a whole bag of fruity goodness erupts. Satsuma plums and deep red ripe watermelon but all with that smoky edge still present. The mouthfeel is immediately creamier and softer and the raisin scone is still there but this time with a healthy dollop of fresh farm cream and a dash of aged balsamic on top. This is exactly why cask strength is so awesome. Please play with this as much as you want as there are plenty of layers to find with more watering here.”
