Banff 1976 Connoisseurs Choice
Banff 1976 Connoisseurs Choice 43% abv
A bottling of 1976 whisky from Banff, bottled by Gordon & Macphail for their Connoisseurs Choice range. The distillery is now long gone, having closed in 1983 and then destroyed by a fire in 1991.
The nose is sweet and fragrant. Very well fruity, pear notes, apple peel and sweet esters. Toasted oak creeps in with a floral edge. The palate is rich. Sherried fruits and burnt sugar and a little allspice, with a soft vanilla. There’s a good balanced of peat and a soft smoke followed by a little star anise and fennel. The finish is sweet with gentle sherried notes.
