Created by George Urquhart in 1968, the Connoisseur's Choice range provided a platform for lesser known distilleries to showcase their single malts. At this time, most spirit was used in blended whiskies so this range was unique, pioneering and ever-changing. To date there have been more than 2,000 bottlings from almost 100 Scottish distilleries.

Each Connoisseur's Choice label details the whisky’s story: cask type, bottling date, strength, vintage and tasting note.

Nose: Dried figs with sweet cured meats and cinnamon spice. Fudge and milk chocolate notes lead to rich smoke.

Palate: Redcurrant gives way to subtle black papper. Red apple comes to the fore alongside lemon peel and toasted oak.

Finish: Medium bodied with pepper. Forest fruits and lingering smoke.
