Royal Salute 38 year old Stone of Destiny
70cl / 40% abv
Crafted from whiskies no less than 38 years old, it shares its name with the legendary coronation stone of Scottish kings. Some even say it is the Stone of Jacob, referred to in Old Testament Book of Genesis. The Scots certainly hold it in reverent awe and were jubilant in 1996 when, after many battles and exactly 700 years in English hands, it was finally returned to its homeland, Scotland. It was last used in Westminster Abbey at the Coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II, and now rests in Edinburgh Castle alongside the Honours of Scotland, the Scottish Crown Jewels.
Nose: Full and deep, richly sherried cedarwood and oak, almonds and walnuts.
Palate: Full, rich and spicy with dried fruits and a deep floral fragrance.
Finish: Soft rich fruit notes.
