The Cooper's Choice range of single cask whiskies from Scotland's finest distilleries are releases from the Family owned Independent Bottlers; The Vintage Malt Whisky Company. The range is a homage to the passion and skill of the Coopers, the craftsmen, who build the barrels for maturation of Scotch Whisky. The range focuses on the impact of maturation in oak, and includes several obscure and rare wood finishes.
Inchgower distillery, while technically in Speyside, is more known for it's obvious coastal influence than for any other facet. The touch of coastal salinity works brilliantly with dark stewed fruit character, such as in this gem. The finish in an ex-Marsala cask has added plenty of stewed fruit and spice character that the salinity really sets off!
Expect a complex nose of sweet fruits, ginger and spice. The palate initially shows heightened stewed fruits and boiled lollies, however as these flavours dissipate there is building caramel, spice and salt. delicious.
