Fine wine and spirits merchant Woolf Sung Ltd has launched the Woolf Sung Collection; a range of ultra-premium, independently bottled, single malt Scotch whisky aged for more than 25 years.
The Hunter’ is the inaugural release. A 40 year old Highland single malt distilled at the Glenglassaugh distillery in 1972, and bottled in 2013 at a cask-strength of 42.9%abv. The aroma opens with an abundance of herbs, dried fruits and a hint of black pepper. With time, fresh apples give way to more robust notes of sherry and dark chocolate. On the palate notes of crab-apple and cinnamon present themselves, followed by more black pepper and plenty of rich oloroso sherry. Water brings zesty ginger, Seville orange marmalade and roast coffee beans. Finally, spicy oak and pearl barley contribute to a long, sumptuous finish.
