The story of Wilson & Morgan is inseparably linked to the history of the Venetian family of the Rossis. In the 1920s wine and oil merchant Giuseppe Rossi, grandfather of today's chairman of Wilson & Morgan, Fabio Rossi, moved from Venice to the mainland and settled in Treviso, a picturesque and thriving town. In the1960s, the company thrived and Mario Rossi began to import whisky from the land of its origin - Scotland.
Cask #4374 by the same bottler and from the same era was fascinating, so, if all goes well… Colour: straw. Nose: oh no, when will it stop? We aren’t far from the Signatory, only a tad rougher and more spirity but otherwise we have the same kind of everlasting development – another movie star. And can one peat quinces? With water: that’s funny, now it smells exactly like the Dun Eideann. Aren’t we good at reducing whisky? Mouth (neat): big and orgasmic – that’ll do. And immensely peaty. With water: ooh-ah. Very classy. Lemon flavoured marzipan and white pepper. Maybe just a tad less majestic than the Signatory, though. Very, very faint dustiness. Finish: not eternal but superb, more on lemons and grapefruits. Comments: just another very great one. Those were the years… SGP:356 – 93 points.
