Footnotes

  • Eos, the Titan goddess of the dawn, should lend her name to our iconic 59 year old single malt.

    Eos is sister to Selene, our highly prized 1951 vintage and was selected from the same two outstanding sherry casks. Having been left to slumber for another year, the whiskies are now even more intense and evocative and have been combined to create a truly enlightening experience.

    Little did we know it then, but on the seventh of June 1951 we were creating history. This was the day that casks 1781 and 1782 were both filled and then left to mature, deep in our dark, bonded warehouse. As countless dawns swept the land, the characteristics that make Eos so unique, slowly developed, infusing the spirit with distinctive aromas, flavours and finishes. Now, over half a century later, our Master Distiller finally believes it's time to bring this individual spirit out into the spotlight.

    Taste Notes

    Just as the sky lightens before dawn, the subtle aromas reach you well before your tongue senses the exquisite flavours. An exhilarating explosion of honeyed pear and pineapple, bitter dark chocolate and roasted coffee wakens the senses before the nose brightens to proffer soft peaches, mangoes and almonds.

    Intense flavours of toffee and caramel, orange, golden syrup and cinnamon all then vie for attention on the palate and leave a long lingering full-flavoured aftertaste.

    伊奧斯是泰坦的黎明女神,我們借用她的名字來為傳奇的59年單一麥芽威士忌命名。
    伊奧斯是月亮女神塞勒涅的妹妹,塞勒涅也是我們珍貴的1951年陳釀,所選取的酒液來自兩個相同的卓越雪莉酒木桶。此兩款威士忌已從沉睡中醒來又一年了,現在更加濃烈,令人回味,聯手創造出真正啟迪心靈的體驗。

    1951年6月7日那天,我們還未知道我們締造了歷史。就是這一天,1781號和1782號木桶都給注滿酒液,在我們昏暗的保稅酒倉裡等待成熟。大地經歷無數個黎明,其特質令伊奧斯如此獨特,慢慢成熟,清晰的芬芳、味道、餘韻滲透整瓶烈酒。如今,逾半個世紀後,我們的首席釀酒大師認為終於是時候讓這瓶有性格的烈酒推出。

    試酒筆記

    正如黎明前天空漸亮,淡淡香氣在舌頭嚐到那細膩的味道前已撲鼻而來。蜜梨與菠蘿味爆發,令人振奮,黑朱古力和烤咖啡的甘香喚醒了感官,隨之而來是桃子、芒果和杏仁味。
    焦糖與太妃糖、橙、金黃色糖漿和肉桂的強烈味道隨之爭奪味蕾的注意力,留下悠長的、濃郁的餘韻。
