House of Peers 21 Year Old The Celebration Blend
Conceived as a whisky to be consumed with dinner, the 21yo house of peers explores the silky, red-fruit laden side of the flavour spectrum.
Coming from the sherry cask matured highland and Speyside malts used in the blend such as Ben Nevis and Mortlach, these red fruit notes make us think of the wonderful fortified wines that the casks used to hold.
Hints of toffee and vanilla speak of the malts such as glen garioch and dailuaine used in the blend which were matured in ex-bourbon barrels. Muscular in body the hop 21yo is a good match for a heavier, meat based dish, drunk with a little water.
