Description

The Chieftain’s Cigar Malt 14 years old 2006 is a heavily sherried Speyside single malt from an undisclosed distillery bottled by the independent bottler Chieftain’s. This Cigar Malt was distilled in May 2006 and matured in first fill sherry butt 6175. It was bottled in November 2020 at natural cask strength of 59% ABV, non chill filtered and with no added colour, as a limited single cask release of 651 bottles.

Nose: Eager and aromatic, this assertive whisky almost jumps out of the glass. The nose opens with a basketful of fresh blackberries and Maraschino cherries, with lashings of milk chocolate. Next comes freshly ground coffee and stewed red apples. With time, beeswax on leather, pipe tobacco, allspice and the savoury note of soy sauce all make their presence felt, with top notes of candied ginger.

Palate: Wonderfully mouthcoating and rich from the outset. Blackberry and cherry jam, dried figs and plenty of milk chocolate with raisin and peanut. A little black coffee around the edges and a touch of umani, before those red apples come to the fore once more with maple syrup and cinnamon dancing in the mid-palate.

Finish: Long and decadent, the chocolate and red apples linger with a touch of malt.
