The 21 year is comprised of two aged whiskeys: one is matured only in ex-bourbon casks and the other in Oloroso Sherry casks. They are then removed from those casks to be joined together in casks previously containing Madeira wine. They get nice and cozy for two years before being released into the world. Very small production of 900 cases each year, this makes an excellent gift for loved ones (which should include yourselves).

Tasting Notes

"As Veruca Salt would say, "I want it now!" With the intensity of the sweet fruit and chocolate notes on the nose, could you blame her? The trail mix filled dram also has deep malt flavors with the texture creamy, not cloying. Towards the finish, the whiskey becomes dry and spicy. A comparable Scotch would be almost double the price so snatch up what you can"
