Hunter Laing Sovereign Caledonian 1982 (35 year old) 46.9%

Age: 35-40 yrs
ABV: 46.9
Bottle size: 70
In stock - only one bottle remaining

Code: SOV2117
Dist: Feb 1982 Btl: 2017
Tasted: Nov 2017
Intense aromas of dark, dried fruit and subtle treacle. Almost malty in character with sweet cinnamon, pepper, heather, raisin, plum, orange and mature American oak. The grain gives it a lovely crisp edge and with time some toasty oak appears.

The palate opens with the dark dried fruit fouind on the nose, followed by sweet vanilla oak and hints of sub-Cognac-esque oxidised fruit. Hints of dark chocolate, spice comes through and some citrus notes freshen the mid palate. Long and succulent with dark chocolate, earth and vanilla. Slightly drying finish but the tannins are super smooth and a little treacle balances.
