Tasting notes

The Last Vatted Malt at midnight in the UK on 22nd November 2011, an era ends.

After that point, it was illegal for whiskymakers to use the term Vatted Malt to describe a Scotch whisky made by the combination of two or more single malts. Vatted Malt is a term that has been in use since at least the 19th century. It represents a style of whisky in which Compass Box specialise, so it has special meaning for their. From 23rd November 2011, this style of whisky will have to be labelled a Blended Malt Scotch Whisky.

This whisky combines intense aromas and flavours of dried fruits and maltiness underscored by a subtle, sweet smokiness, all robed in the revealing signs of whiskies of antiquity. It is composed of two single malts: approximately 22% of the recipe is whisky distilled at the younger of the two distilleries in the village of Aberlour in 1974 (36 years old), aged in a first fill sherry butt; the balance (78%) is from the famed distillery in the village of Port Askaig on Islay, made in 1984 (26 years old), aged in American oak hogsheeds.

A limited release of 1323 bottles.
