Crafted from unpeated spirit, it has been matured for around four years in a combination of beautiful half-size (100 litre) first-fill bourbon barrels and second-fill Oloroso sherry hogsheads. The resulting whisky is rich and complex in flavour, with a beautifully sweet and aromatic nose and a lingering finish.
ON THE PALATE
On the palate its complexity shows itself: at first sweet and creamy, then soft bourbon notes begin to shine through. Hints of oak and vanillin are present throughout and as the oaky flavours subside autumn fruits come to the fore: dried apple, gooseberries and maple syrup are all here. The finish lingers, with the honey tones present until the very end. It is a truly beautiful dram.
ON THE NOSE
On the nose sherry sweetness mingles with aromas of heather honey and apple blossom.
