There will be many opinions referring to the time period of Whisky Production in Scotland that could be referred to as "The Golden Age of Whisky." There is a time however that without doubt was special and considered by many that period.
The whisky made early 60s-70s with direct firing of stills, the abundant use of Golden Promise Barley, a slower more deliberated approach to production and even a more generous portion of malts in blends of the period ,all lead to a treasure of never again to be repeated whiskies.
We refer to this as the "The Golden Era of whisky."
Watch for whiskies from Turmeaus that is identified as such and give it careful consideration when you feel like a rare and special dram "
Nose: Sweet, full and vibrant, with fresh fruit notes - balancing citrus notes of tangerine and lemon turn into a rich, smooth maltiness with toffee, honey and barley sugar with a hint f spiced clove.
Palate: Sweet and spicy with pears and sweet apples finished with a splash of cream from fresh-toasted oak. This then dries up with a balancing tangerine sharpness, before soft, smooth fruit syrup emerges with a soft oak intensity never far away.
Finish: Relatively long and creamy, spicy-sweet. Drying cocoa, dark chocolate, toasty oak, with a lingering note of citrus.
