Product Description

Matured in very small casks which are approximately 1/8th the size of a regular cask. This increased ratio of wood to liquid imparts intense flavours more quickly into the final Whisky.

Nose: Soft and fruity with notes of poached pears, summery meadows, stock syrup, runny honey, vanilla wafers, caramelised pineapple and a dusting of cocoa powder.

Palate: Salted caramel, rich toffee, poached pears in stock syrup, apple crumble made with oats and drizzled with honey, vanillin oak & praline.

Finish: Toffee apple, more poached pears with aromatic spice  and caramelised orchard fruits and creamy oak.

One of my favourite new releases of 2016 and along with the peated version goes to show the wonders you can do with a great small cask at a young age.

A juicy, fruity and moreish offering from a distillery that only reopened in 2008 after 22 years of being silent.

91.5 Points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible

"Very high quality malt with a clean, intense persona which makes the most of any sweetness going."
