When this whisky was first blended, it would have been described as a“deluxe blend”, comprising over60% single malts. Nearly20 years in sherrybutts, before along, slow finishin ex-Bourbon casks, has produced amagnificent whisky: a perfect example ofthe magic that can happenbetween distillate and wood.
56 years’ ageing have created a remarkable and unique whisky, with all the hallmarks of single malts from every corner of Scotland. There are notes of Islay smoke, sweetness from Speyside, and a roundness and depth that is redolent of the Highlands. The colour comes from many years in sherry, but the additional 30 years in bourbon wood have brought complementary layers of vanilla and molasses.
