Prometheus single malt was launched in January 2015 by the Glasgow Distillery Company, the first distillery to be built in Glasgow in more than 100 years.
The whisky, sourced from undisclosed Speyside distillery, is named after the famous titan of Greek mythology, who stole fire from the gods and brought it to Earth. The company describes Prometheus whisky as “peaty fire of the islands with the rich complexity of the Highlands” and holds some stock for further maturation. The 2015 limited release (3000 bottles) marked as Cache 1 comprises whisky distilled in April 1988, aged in first fill Spanish oak sherry casks for 26 years and bottled at 47%. Rumor has it that it comes from the Macallan Distillery. (Producer’s tasting notes.)
Nose: a warm and welcoming bouquet with sweet notes of butterscotch, aromatic heather, orange zest and smoky charcoal.
Palate: satisfyingly long lasting, creamy and peppery with aromas of roasted nuts, nutmeg and clove entwined with hints of Madagascan vanilla, dark chocolate, rich fruitcake, heather honey, candied fruit and smoke.
