To date this is the oldest French Oak Single Cask ever released by the distillery. After such a long maturation, this 300-litre French oak ex-tawny cask yielded only 447 bottles at 47.3% abv. This bottling is a true piece of whisky history and has incredible texture, complexity and length of palate.

From the Distillery

Nose: Deeply floral to the point of being almost gamey; similar to a big Jamaican rum. Orange zest and marmalade, dried figs. Grape molasses, butterscotch, mocha, leatherwood honey. Cigar humidor, and a minty note.

Palate: Full texture, très oily. Ripe peaches, oranges, touch of tropical (dried banana and mango sorbet). A nice little medicinal note peeps in there, followed by walnuts, dried apricots, fruitcake, bag of dried apple. Touch of cherry cola, anise seed, brown sugar and butter batter, and liquid dates. Ripe cherries, boysenberry ice-cream. Herbal notes brighten up the corners. Mellow with a whole lot of complexity going on.

Finish: Mocha, coffee, fudge, chocolate. Big burst of pawpaw, mango and a lovely Assam tea note, then Crème Anglaise and vanilla. Moving fast and slow all at once; seems to gracefully know exactly where it’s going. Licorice, honeycomb, a mossy note, and frankincense (if it had a taste…). Fine black tea comes around again: very soft and fine tannin shows a wonderfully matured structure. Fills palate gently and with staying power.
