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: Aromas of pineapple and Seville orange zest give way to subtle honeycomb.
Palate: Sweet pear flavours give way to soft pepper and white chocolate.
Finish: A full finish with vanilla and citrus.
