From the archives. "Hot mahogany shavings. This 'Top Class' Speyside was rare until recently; owing to the demand from blenders. Proprietary bottlings are also only done by the distinguished wine and spirit merchants, Berry Bros & Rudd of St James'. Mid gold and sparkly in appearance, with outstanding beading, the nose is sweet and rich, redolent of barley sugar, brandy snaps and fresh hardwood sawdust. With water these fresh woody notes become more pronounced: dry mahogany shavings and the flavour continues the theme in the aftertaste, after a sweet start and a slightly oily finish." The original price of this bottle in 1997 was £45.
