GSN Review: Prometheus 26 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky Cache 1

prometheus-26-year-old-speyside-single-malt-scotch-whisky-4_1Prometheus 26 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a unique effort spearheaded by Bespoke Spirits and the Glasgow Distillery Co. The idea for Prometheus was born when Glasgow CEO Liam Hughes chanced upon a batch of whisky combining the smoky influence of peated barley with the zesty and floral notes typical of Speyside. Hughes decided to bottle the whisky but keep its origins a secret. We do know, however, that the amazing whisky is a reborn single malt, aged 26 years and finished in hand-crafted sherry casks (it’s rumored the whisky comes from Macallan… but you didn’t hear it from us!).

Prometheus 26 Year Old (94 proof)
Visual: Medium pale gold.
Nose: Cocoa powder, barley malt, green apple, red raspberry, ancient dried rose petals, new cut cedar.
Taste: Scrumptious.  Lovely self-assured entry with a lot of sherry to cross fade with the hearty ex-bourbon cask aging.  Fruity, floral and upbeat.  A fine whisky to sip with soft cheeses and apple slices. Yet, you probably won’t, since this retails for $950 a bottle.  A shame.
Finish: Very long with warming, sherry coloration still pursuing your taste buds.
Overall: A truly fine whisky that I would hate to see kept purely as an investment.  This level of quality deserves to be enjoyed.
GSN Rating: A+
