This is our oldest core range age statement available.
The whisky has been matured in ex-Sherry and Bourbon Casks and is bottles at 46% Vol without chill filtration or the addition of any colouring.
Here's a breakdown of the life span of 1995 casks we selected for this very first batch:
Original 1996 Stock: 35% ex-sherry / 65% ex-Bourbon
Re-casking: All stock re-casked into 1st Fill and Refill Sherry Hogsheads for 12 months prior to bottling.
Nose – Rich oak with a gentle nutmeg note. Sweeter aromas of baked ripe figs, sultanas and black cherries.
Palate – Fruit cake with toasted almonds and cinnamon. The juicy zestiness of oranges and mandarins mellows perfectly with manuka honey, muscovado sugar, baked apricots and an interesting white pepper note that provides even more complexity.
Finish - Creamy and spicy with dark chocolate, walnuts and dark fruits compote.
