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: tropical fruit aromas combine with lemon zest and a hint of cocoa powder.
Palate: flavours emerge of pineapple, mango and dessicated coconut. Medium bodied finish with orange peel and oak.
