About this whiskey:
After 15 years of maturation in American white-oak, ex-bourbon casks, around 30% of the whisky is transferred into Spanish Oloroso sherry casks for three years. When both parts have reached 18 years, they are blended together. The Oloroso casks provide an incredible degree of vibrancy, while the American oak balances the raisin-like sweetness of the sherry.
Aroma: Rich, rounded and sweet with dried fruits and a complex floral fragrance.
Taste: The taste is balanced between honey, malt and flowery scents. Dates and figs emerge in the background with a hint of wood smoke.
Finish: The finish is long and enticing with the sweetness of dried fruit and subtle dryness of Oloroso nuttiness.
Color: Honeyed gold

95 Pts - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2022
"Here we have wonderfully fragrant aromas of toffee and vanilla cream, leading to flavours of dried raisin and rich honey. Malty and densely packed, with a lifted green edge to the finish. Quite marvelous!"
95 Points, Finalist, Tried & True - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2022
"Shows a luxurious bouquet of coconut cream, dried yellow flower, rum raisin, white peach, lemon custard, and candied clove. The decadence continues with a lush palate serving more sweet grain and barrel flavors and finishing with lingering elegance."
