Tasting Note:

A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt.From three cask types chosen for flavour alone: both refill & rejuvenated American Oak hogsheads and ex-bodega European Oak butts. Just 4,932 individually numbered bottles worldwide. Warm yellow-gold in colour with good beading. On the nose it is warming. Softly fresh, with gentle traces of beeswax then orange zest. With time, a beautifully balancing spicy acidity appears, followed by ripe red apple. Later, a little dried herb and a marzipan sweetness. Softer and approachable with a drop of water, which introduces a menthol note. On the palate it is smooth and sweet, becoming cedary and aromatic, although still unctuous. Slowly developing beautiful notes of cocoa and liquorice, then growing savoury, with porcini and a little salt. The finish is long, warming and cleansing. Growing charred, like a burnt fruit on a panettone; rounded and drying, with late flinty notes and coating tannins.
