The owner of the distillery that makes this whisky is well known for its use of wine casks, and this whisky takes that idea and runs with it. Matured in a Sauternes casks from Château Climens, it combines the hugely smoky spirit with the character of a world-class sweet wine.
Two Sauternes casks.
A blast of wood and peat smoke leads to sweet and fruity notes of toffee apple and milk-chocolate orange.
Intense and deep, with a rich and creamy texture backed up by creamy flavours: chocolate and vanilla. The sweetness is tempered by zesty lime and savoury peat smoke.
Long and smoky, fading to spicy vanilla.
