A beautiful expression of a Fino sherry cask finish, the whisky is a blend of the finest grain and malt whiskies which our Master Distiller first matured for five years in older American oak. The whisky was then released into seasoned Fino sherry casks for a further maturation period of four years. Visiting the spirit at regular intervals, our Master Distiller, Andy Watts, witnessed the unravelling of extraction from the wood over four years and finally selected four casks which he deemed to offer optimal flavour composition. Un-chillfiltered and natural in colour, the whisky is presented in its purest form.
Colour: Dark, rich golden African sunrise
Nose: Prominent smoke and peat interlaced with figs , pineapple, orange peel, pepper and spice.
Palate: The whisky opens up with peat, treacle syrup, tobacco, spice and a playful nuttiness.
Finish: Long and warm with lingering tropical fruits, almonds and a soft smoky mouthful.
