Speyside
official bottling, The Genesis Decanter produced to coincide with the opening of the newly expanded distillery in 2018, Lalique crystal decanter and accompanying stopper, hand-made wooden presentation case, "Nose: A delicate peat starts, leading to a soft, aged smoke. A body of refreshing citrus lemons and green apples, with a background of vanilla pods and raisins, with the smallest hint of ginger. Palate: Delicate peat smoke combines with a soft vanilla and a surprising sweet oak smoke. A gentle wood spice combines with a delicate peat smoke, which gradually fades to leave a viscous mouth coating of citrus fruits and subtle green apple. Finish: Medium and fruity, with a sweet, oaky mouth feel. Each commemorative decanter is housed in a bespoke presentation case, hand crafted from the finest materials by Royal Warrant holding cabinet makers N.E.J. Stevenson. A combination of wood, linen, solid brass and pure suede, each case is assembled, polished and finished entirely by hand, using natural variations in the grain patterns of the timber to ensure every box is unique," includes polishing cloth, decanter 506/600, 42%
