The First Editions range of single barrel expressions is always released at natural cask strength, and of course without colouring or chill filtration.
As the name may suggest, each cask is carefully selected to evoke the qualities of a rare literary volume – those of character and collectability. Colour-coding on the labels denotes the particular regions the whiskies themselves are from and each bottle is individually numbered and presented in a gift tube. A “First Editions” bottling without doubt makes a valuable addition to anyone’s whisky library.
A nose of flowers, coffee and caramel. The palate is sweet with lemons, caramel and dusty books. The finish is long and mellow with lingering toffee.
