Inspired by a 1929 surrealist artwork, ‚ÄòThis is not a luxury Whisky‚Äô is a compelling, lingering, complex Blended Scotch packaged in a style that we hope also poses questions about what it is that makes a luxury whisky a ‚Äòluxury‚Äô.
Sultanas, sweet sherry and concentrated floral notes combine with deep demerara sweetness, cacao and lighter creamy coconut character. An inviting nose, fat and full-bodied on the palate with a long lingering sweet-smoke finish.
Everyone‚Äôs definition of luxury is different, but for us, this is about as close as it gets.
