Sorry, this item is no longer available

13 years in ex-Bourbon, 4 years finishing in Sherry Butts
Dist: 2000 Btl: 2017
Tasted: May 2018
Aromas of luscious, mature American oak, barley, honey and almost tropical fruit. Hints of Armagnac-esque, pruney sherry follow, along with liquorice and classic Highland granity notes. With time it becomes wonderfully fragrant.

The palate opens with the toffee’d oak and deeper barley notes. Hints of malt, treacle, cinnamon, clove and raisinated sherried fruit follow. More oak influenced than the nose but I have to say that the balance is superb and aided by the citrus and granity notes. Long with the citrus and granity notes lingering and the American oak returning. Fabulous sweet/ bitter spice after-taste.
