Cask TypeSpanish and American oak
"A very complex dram on the nose, but very balanced as well with orange blossom, buttered brioche, candied lemon peel, yellow plum and delicious brown sugar. All those notes blend with some floor polish, beeswax and Christmas spices. On the palate, a syrupy nectar of citrus, oak, and spices. After a moment, tropical fruits and vanilla cake. The finish is long with herbal honey and earthy notes."
