Description

With only around 150-200 cases made and only in the very finest vintages, Excelsior is a true collectible Bannockburn classic. Made in Carrick's traditionally more elegant and texturally focused style (rather than the whopping great 'more is more' style) it's pleasing to see real site expression here, with fabulous exotic spices and quite clearly the structure and class to evolve for a good decade in the cellar.

Smells

Subtle savoury herbal complexity on the nose with a range of exotic spices, thyme, clove hay, cherries and liquorice.

Tastes

Impressively fine and silky with a serious backbone of minute, detailed tannins, finishing dry and long. Still a baby yet, though approachable with some time in the decanter, we'd recommend tucking into this from 2018 - 2023 and likely, well beyond.
