"A Remarkable journey for the senses, a powerful experience of flavour and aroma inspired by the world of the Master Perfumer. The use of smaller casks increases the contact between our whisky and the exceptional wood to intensify the sensory adventure" Bob Dalgarno.
"Best World Whisky" for 2014 at the International Whisky Competition in Chicago.
Loads of character and depth, just what we've come to expect from the distillery.
Whisky matured first in American oak barrels, which impart soft sweet vanilla notes, before being transferred to European oak sherry casks, where the second cask ageing adds rich spicy flavours and a depth and fullness of flavour.
It is a mixture of PX and Oloroso casks, and bottled at a very respectable 48 percent. Rating: 90
Created to reflect the the style of whisky of the early 19th century
