This whisky was matured in the legendary Warehouse #1 Vaults. First resting in ex-bourbon barrels for 13 years and then transferred to port pipes for a further 14 years. This is what would be called a double maturation.
The nose is peaty and medicinal with a strong toffee, herbal and spicy character followed by a heather fragrance with a hint of Rosemary. Old Port wine notes complemented by raspberries coulis and red berries.
The taste is sweet and salty with smoke, mixed with sultanas, sugarplums, salted caramel, and sweet leathery notes. Pepper and spices with a violet fragrance.
The finish is earthy carbolic notes, salted dates, dried herbs, sweet tobacco, sweet dried cranberries, and a touch of white pepper.
