The Pinnacle Vintage NFT
ABV 40%

A captivating harmony of aromas, spanning from tropical fruit notes of peaches and melons to old worn leather and antique furniture. Sweet vanilla and dried heather create a melodious scent, that carefully navigates through the pot still spices and charred oak.


Initially welcomed by the aged tannins, these notes of dark chocolate and green tea are closely followed by a decadent sweetness of muscovado sugar, vanilla, and honey-drizzled figs. Orange oil and passion fruit add a striking and colourful explosion of flavour, while the pot still spices and delicate floral grain attributes remain constant in the background.


The finish is lingering and complex with the sweetness gently fading allowing an ambrosial fruit-led crescendo. A whiskey truly embodying timelessness.
