(Bottle size 750ml)
Signatory's Very Cloudy range takes its name from the fact that the whiskies are non-chillfiltered but bottled below 46%, which results in the whisky turning cloudy/hazy when the temperature is slightly lowered.
Nose: Deliciously fruity and fresh with liquorice, menthol and a herbaceousness.
Palate: Elegant and well balanced with candied fruit cake, juicy tangerine and pineapple and banana.
Finish: Long and malty with liquorice, salt and candied pear.
