This 21 Years Old has been matured for at least 21 years in a combination of four types of casks: bourbon barrels, virgin oak casks, Pedro Ximinez sherry casks and red wine casks. The whisky from these four woods has then been blended together to create what the distillery call 'a multi-faceted and superbly balanced malt with each type of cask adding unique notes to the taste experience.
|Distillery: Ripe summer fruit compote with contrasting candied peel and a warming stem ginger background.
The WSD: Peppered peach skins to start with then sweet dessert apples. A touch of melon liqueur (M).
|Distillery: Soft vanilla and cinnamon give way to tangy red fruits and citrus peel. Barley sugars and honeyed malt build into the long, sweet and satisfying finish.
The WSD: Very spicy - almost a chilli kick. There is more melon liqueur (M).
