Wilson & Morgan Barrel Selection 12 Years Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Since 1992, the independent whisky-bottler Wilson & Morgan has offered a fine selection of rare Scotch malt whiskies to connoisseurs all over the world. Wilson & Morgan selects only the best malts from 10 to 30 years of maturation, sometimes after re-casking for finishing in port, rum or Marsala casks. These malts are bottled at peak maturation and then shipped to countries all over the world, including Japan, France, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, and of course Italy, where today, they can be found in selected outlets, Michelin Star restaurants, wine and gourmet shops.
The perfect balance between juicy oakiness and fresh dryness, from the marriage of one virgin American oak barrel and two ex-bourbon barrels: this new release at cask strength encompasses the best of both styles. It’s a particularly warm and deep Islay malt: the traditionally smoky notes are maybe less maritime than usual, with a darker tarry note.
Nose: Natural hot springs, white pepper, red berries, sweet pastry.
Palate: Creamy and fruity, red berries, raisins and peat smoke.
Finish: Fruity, with peppery spice and caramel sweetness.
