Master Distiller Bill White selects individual casks matured exclusively in traditional American oak whisky barrels before marrying them together for a further maturation in Casks that have previously been used for making fortified madeira wine. The madeira cask finish enhances the orchard fruit character of peach and pear with marzipan and nutmeg and gives a dry nuttiness to the long, oak finish.

PALATE: Velvet smooth and welcoming on the tongue. Fruity character of peach and fig is overlaid with rich butterscotch and delicate walnut.
