Quintessence is a smooth single malt whisky. Old Kempton Distillery and Callington Mill have done a marvelous job making it sweet - but not sugary, with tastes of tropical fruits and traces of the tawn port casks. I am looking forward to trying some more of Calington Mills limited release whiskys, and will get another bottle of Quintessence to put away Cheers Edgar
"The perfect embodiment of quality or class."
This Port fusion Single Malt Whisky is the perfect example of class and elegance.
This spirit was exclusively crafted by Old Kempton Distillery and matured in small Australian Tawny Casks until ready to savour.
The complexity of the whisky was further evolved in a number of exclusive and rare Tawny Port casks from the heart of the Douro Valley, Portugal.
The result is a complex, harmonious and contrasting melody of coconut, nutmeg and poached pears dancing on the palate. A true paradigm of quality, class and elegance.
