Daftmill is a farm-to bottle distillery based in Fife, Scotland using its own estate-grown barley in its production of single malt whiskies. The Lowlands distillery is a working farm and as such only distills twice a year -- two months in the summer and two in the winter. For this US exclusive release, 7 first-fill ex-bourbon barrels were filled in September 2006 and bottled in July 2019. Only 1680 bottles produced.

Tasting Notes

"There are aromas of toasty barley, honey and red apple. It's almost creamy on the palate, with soft flavors of sweet orange, honey alongside spicy black pepper and clove. This whisky is light enough that it would be easy to go through a bottle quickly, so be sure to take the time to savor."
