20 Year Old Speyside Cognac Finish – Whisky Works
This bottling from Whisky Works hails from an undisclosed now-silent Speyside distillery. Seeing as we know that this single malt was distilled in September 1998, and was one of the final production runs before the distillery closed, we might be able to work out where it came from… Of its two decades of ageing, most of it was spent in American white oak, though it was treated to a finish in Cognac barriques for seven months before bottling. The finishing casks previously held Cognac which was also distilled in 1998, from the Bourgoin Estate in southwest France. A limited 1,618 bottles were released at 47.1% ABV.

Nose: Sweet notes of freshly cut grass, with lemon drizzle and parma violets.
Palate: Raspberry and white chocolate muffin, balanced by cut herbs and Turkish delight, supported by milk chocolate and a hint of treacle.
