THE VAULTS COLLECTION

The Vaults Collection is a selection of the finest and rarest single cask, single malt whisky, set aside from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s most remarkable stocks over the years. They have been released from the depths of our treasure trove of casks, after decades of slow maturation and careful nurturing. The Vaults Collection represents the whisky lover’s dream: A chance to journey back into whisky history, including the opportunity to experience styles or distilleries that no longer exist. The Collection takes its name from the Society’s historical home at The Vaults in Leith, Scotland’s oldest commercial building in continuous use whose connection with the drinks world dates back to the 12th century.

Spirit Notes

The nose neat had that sense of calmness and elegance which is simply irresistible. There was chamois leather, ginger sponge cake, cinder toffee, baked apples plus hints of hazelnuts, figs, nutmeg and exotic wood – the list could go on and on! On the palate, rich, mellow and smooth, gentle, refined and sublime. We had to go exotic here, like roasted nectarines with labneh, herbs and honey – a combination that simply cannot fail to please. The tiniest drop of water, if you wish, and you will be rewarded with the scent of heather, bergamot and candied brazil nuts while to taste Samai salted plantain chips.
