The whiskies used to compose the 18 year have spent their time exclusively in either ex-Bourbon barrels or in ex-Sherry casks. They are then blended together to produce this treasure. One note doesn't outshine the other, but rather it is a marvelous symphony of aromas and flavors.

Tasting Notes

"This whisky is a perfect harmony of sweet and savory notes. The foreground is honey and black jam. Diving a bit further you discover seaweed, salted caramel, and cinnamon spices. The touch of salt produces a mouthwatering experience and the conclusion of the dram is gentle lingering smoke."
