The next studio experience will be held on January 15, 2021 at the Mandarin Oriental

With only 106 bottles available worldwide, The Time Series 52-Year-Old Single Cask Finish is one of the oldest whiskies in the Royal Salute Collection. Priced at RM138,888, each bottle has its own unique number; 37 and 38 were made available and subsequently purchased in Malaysia. Collectors should expect to receive their whiskey in a box comprised of five layers of wood, one for each decade of maturation. Flavour notes of the blend are creamy and sweet; ripe plum, toffee apples, dark chocolate hazelnuts and orange marmalade are just a handful of the complex tastes one might experience.

With 52 years of ageing, the delicate balance of some of the rarest of our whiskies has created an unrivalled depth of flavour and unbelievably complex characteristic, making for a remarkable expression that perfectly shows that time is a key element of our creations.

Through the Royal Salute Olfactory Studio, we want to push the potential of guests’ tasting experience through sensorial stimulation, which is a one-of-a-kind journey to help understand the beauty and craft behind the art of blending.

The collection of Scotch whiskeys that will be served include The Signature, The Malts and The Lost Blends.

The Signature is known for its full, fruity flavours of citrus and spice, while the Malt is recognised by its sweetness from apricots, vanilla and banana. Juicy pears, orange rind and hazelnuts are characteristic of the Lost Blend.

These tastings will be hosted by Jasper Epson, Scotch Whiskey Ambassador. Guests will also be gifted three fragrances which pair perfectly which each whiskey. A private dinner for 10 pax conducted in the same style as the Olfactory Studio Experience will also be arranged for collectors of The Time Series 52-year-old Scotch.
