    For five years, this single malt is to be matured in the special Manzanilla Casks, after 13 years in the ex-Bourbon cask. For me, when bottling in cask strength is still a few drops of water, so just under 50 vol%. The water brings out the smoke and the fruit more. The floral gentle touch of the normal 18s I miss something. The bottom line too expensive!

      Some smoke and fruitiness, dark fruit. Caramel sweetness and a very light herbal seasoning.
    • Taste
      89 89
      In the taste now more smoke, sweet and fruity. Citrus notes.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The taste in the mouth stays rather long and the mouth gets slightly dry.
