This bottling is a departure from their Extra Matured line which use The Original as a base before finishing in a wine cask. The 18 Year is aged for 15 years in ex-bourbon casks, then a third of this is finished in ex sherry casks while the remaining continue to mature in their barrels until all of the whisky is at least 18 years old.

Tasting Notes

"Desserts galore come to mind with this whisky. The aroma is bursting of fresh lemon hand pies with the taste profile moving towards cherry pie with a rich, buttery crust. As you continue down the dessert list, crème brûlée with its just torched sugar crust is paired with a cinnamon honey and citrus hot toddy. Even with all of these sweet, heavy descriptors, there is a zing to this whisky that keeps it fresh and alive. "
