Royal Salute 38 Year Stone of Destiny
Royal Salute // Scotland
The Stone of Destiny is a stone that had been used centuries ago to coronate Scottish Kings. And though it only very recently made it back into Scottish hands in 1996, was last used to coronate Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. This 38 year old whisky has been placed in a porcelain bottle with a granite appearance to emulate the stone.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
"As you move closer to the glass, you get the style of the Royal Salute Series: citrus zests, dry fruits, but also a much more pronounced marzipan aroma. It follows on the palate with more expressivity with notes such as tangy grapefruits and mandarins before more dry fruits appear to give place to a smoother and sweeter profile. This is all works well with spices, ripe apples and touches of wood and finishes on the dry side. "
