Much like the 10 year bottling, this is a light Speyside whisky that ages in ex-bourbon barrels. There are quite a few independent releases to keep an eye out despite the limited distillery bottles available on the market; they tend to be much older--say 27-34 years old--and quite developed.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is full of toasted grains and pear with a touch of popcorn and dark chocolate. Slightly richer than the 10 year old bottling, the fruity notes continue on the mid-palate with hints of coconut and vanilla from the barrels. The spice factor is kept to a minimum with the sweet, fruity nature of the whisky smoothing out any rough edges."
