Cask No. 35.270
At the end of a perfect day
Imagine coming inside after a bracing walk in very cold conditions, you’ve slipped off your comfortable coat crafted from a blend of camel hair and virgin wool, put on your slippers and sat down by the open crackling fire to enjoy figs in syrup, sweet dates wrapped in bacon, mature cheddar cheese and a glass of very old vintage Malmsey Madeira wine. If you so wish, add a drop of water and you will be rewarded with a classic crêpes Suzette served in a delicious orange and caramel sauce flambé with Grand Marnier. After spending 30 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a second-fill toasted oak hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.

About Cask 35.270 At the end of a perfect day:
Cask 35.270 'At the end of a perfect day' exemplifies a perfectly-aged cask that sees extraordinary benefit from additional maturation. This thirty-three-year-old single malt is the oldest we will release in 2021! It garnered impeccably nuanced aromas and flavours from thirty years in an ex-bourbon hogshead with the next two years of maturation in a toasted oak hogshead enriching the profile to offer seductive complexity.
About The Vaults Collection:
The Vaults Collection is a selection of the finest and rarest single cask, single malt whisky, set aside from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s most remarkable stocks over the years. They have been released from the depths of our treasure trove of casks, after decades of slow maturation and careful nurturing. The Vaults Collection represents the whisky lover’s dream: A chance to journey back into whisky history, including the opportunity to experience styles or distilleries that no longer exist. The Collection takes its name from the Society’s historical home at The Vaults in Leith, Scotland’s oldest commercial building in continuous use whose connection with the drinks world dates back to the 12th century. Each bottle has a specially designed label and is offered in a beautiful wooden box.
