Made in 1990 from a particularly challenging-to-distill barley crop, this honey-hued spirit takes a while to open up; aromas morph from grainy to hinting at tropical fruit freshness. The palate leads on citrus astringency, fading to honey, vanilla and an oaky core, finishing with baking spice. Water softens the oak to a vanilla custard note. This bottling is the first release from the Bond House No. 1 Collection of vintage expressions created for collectors.
