A 1974 vintage whisky from the closed and since demolished Banff whisky distillery, bottled in 1974 by Gordon & Macphail for their Connoissseurs Choice range. Historically one of the more overlooked gems of the lost distilleries range, Banff due to its use for blending didn't really get the chance to adopt a following until the rare malts range. Sadly these are all now like gold dust but the Connoissseurs Choice survives, for now.
Fruity, smoky tropical mango and pineapple, augmented by tender, classic peat notes, the oak rounds this one off nicely here. Sweet, spicy, and wonderfully full, beautiful smoke, Toffifee, hazelnuts and crumbly biscuit fade away leaving a lingering taste of strawberry jam and very lightly toasted almonds. Nowhere near as short as you'd expect at 40%.
