FINE & RARE 1939


The Year that Was

In the year that World War II started, nylon stockings first went on sale for the first time in the USA, the classic movie ‘Gone with the Wind’ premiered, and The World Fair opened in New York. Frank Sinatra made his recording debut and, with help from University of Chicago physicist Arthur Compton, General Electric invented a new, efficient form of illumination – the fluorescent light.

The Experience

    Rich Oak

  • Nose

    Orangey with rich dried fruits of prunes and dates. Treacle and vanilla toffees with light peat smoke and wood.

  • Palate

    Rich peat and powerful wood which gently dries the palate. Sweet toffees overlaid with fruits help reduce the dryness, resulting in greater balance.

    43% vol
