The 17-year-old predominantly features ex-bourbon maturation, with the addition of spirit that has been wholly matured in Spanish wood ex-sherry casks, predominantly Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso. This adds a subtle depth and complexity to the whisky, making for an outstanding after-dinner drink.
NOSE: Sweet with traces of apples and pears: slightly woody with a hint of butterscotch.
COLOUR: Red amber with a rich autumnal hue.
TASTE: Full bodied, with hints of vanilla and floral notes in the background; a long-lasting memorable finish.
RATINGS: 95 Points - Jim Murray's 2016 Whisky Bible.
