$540.00

Behind the number 9 hides a distillery founded in 1840 by two brothers named James and John. Equipped with ten Oregon pine washbacks, it saw the number of bell-shaped stills increase from four to six in 1973 and from six to eight in 1977. Aged in a Spanish oak cask previously containing Oloroso sherry, this version invites us to embark on a journey through an aromatic and flavorful palette whose finesse and noble expression reach their peak in a fruity and floral finish full of lyricism.

Tasting Notes


Colour
: Coppery orange.

Nose : Fine, sophisticated. Balsamic (lime, pine, cedar), exotic (guava, mango), and floral (hawthorn), the initial nose is particularly deep. Upon aeration, apricot, orange, and melon mingle with noble spices (cardamom, ginger) and more tertiary fragrances (cep mushroom, moss). Then, red and black fruits (strawberry, blackberry) arrive as the highlight.

Palate : Both lively and elegant. Resuming the tasting journey, the beginning of the finish is remarkably mature (date, fig, toffee). Subsequently, flavors of coconut, quince jelly, and freshly squeezed orange refresh the palate.

Finish : Long, expansive. Tenderly spicy (nutmeg, cinnamon), the start of the finish is oxidative (cherry eau-de-vie) and floral (faded rose, petunia). In the aftertaste, more resinous (pine) and honeyed (lavender, heather) flavors evolve harmoniously. The very end of the palate is powdery (cocoa) and nobly woody (suspended dust).
