Available beginning December 2017, this 50 year-old whisky was distilled in 1967. It first was placed in American oak hogshead before being transferred to a former sherry European oak cask for its final 18 years of maturation. Bottled at 46.2% ABV, there are 60 hand-blown crystal decanters available worldwide. The decanter resides in a bespoke solid oak chest with indigo-lined leather created by Scotland’s Method Studio.

Tasting Notes

"The sherry influence is obvious. Warming aromas of baking spices, and quite a lot of orange and sultanas, with finally some aniseed popping up. The palate provides plenty of banana, fresh pineapple and delicate honeycomb. There's also room for milk chocolate and soft notes of grapefruit. After 50 years, the oak is present, yet not overpowering. Well-rounded, complex and balanced."
