  1. MaxHill did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Additional info: Distilled 17.8.2017 (can be named whisky on 18.8.2020). First spirit run produced around 1000L of 58% spirit. This spirit was put in four STR oak hogsheads (250L). After 32 months liquid of one cask was put to a hogshead (225L) made from french oak (quercus robur/quercus patraea) where the Italian dessert wine Marsala, Superiore Riserva from Sicily had previously matured for 4 years to finish the whisky for 5 more months. Contents of second hogshead were put to virgin oak cask and remaining 2 hogsheads are waiting for at least 3 more years because original King Barley was a 6 year old whisky.
