Notes

About Happily ever after: Our Father’s Day 2024 US-exclusive cask is a soft and nuanced malt redolent with light smoke and a ‘surf ‘n turf’ inspired profile. This 25-year-old is very special, indeed, hailing from a different generation of production at Distillery 66 and yielding aromas and flavours you’ll be hard-pressed to discover today.

Tasting Panel Note: We were surprised by the pale colour pouring this dram, however when we nosed it, we moved into a land of fairy tales. We imagined a cosy cottage in a winter wonderland, a starlit night, a full moon and, after a long walk, the first thing we spotted was the smoke coming out of the chimney. We entered and a warm hug awaited us, while our dog was wagging its tail – we had arrived! With a drop of water, the aroma of skirt steak, chimichurri sauce and grilled lobster tails in a white wine sauce filled the room. And yes, we all lived happily ever after.
