This single malt whisky has been laid down in specially selected casks which have been handpicked by our Master Distiller, Iain McAlister. Gently matured in the finest American oak barrels, discover hints of vanilla oak, interwoven with the subtle notes of sea spray and spicy aromatic fruits.
Richer colours. Broad and medium-weight with citrus peels, ginger snap biscuits. Sweet and with great depth. Apricot aromas develop then drift towards fruit salad. After a short time, the wood comes to the fore and water helps to release baked fruit.
A complicated palate where the initial nose would lead you to expect plump fruits, but what you get is a surprisingly dry element. Adding water will bring out the caramelised elements, balanced with the wood elements expected of a 15 year old.
