Matured in the traditional style in American bourbon barrels, this whisky is then finished in Moscatel wine casks sourced from Portugal. During this second period of maturation, the whisky interacts with the oak wood and derives a number of additional flavours and aromas specific to the Moscatel wine cask.

Tasting Notes

Nose
Distillery: A full, sumptuous nose consisting of dark orange marmalade, rich fig syrup and sweet dates. A dusting of cocoa and cinnamon followed by a gentle hint of garden mint adds a luxurious character.
Taste
Distillery: Rich, velvety dark chocolate fondant topped with glazed maraschino cherries develops to plum cordial and spiced honey. The long finish is rounded with a gentle, earthy balance of nutmeg, stewed barley and old vintage leather.
Finish
Distillery: A rich body laden with dark Mediterranean fruits and a complementary balance of warm spices and delicate oak characters.
