52.5% | 70cl | Campbeltown | NCF | Limited Edition | Cask Strength | Peated
This edition has been matured for 7 years in bourbon casks then a further 3 years in refill malbec red wine casks. The Malbec barriques for this expression have been sourced from De Toren Private Cellar in Stellenbosch, South Africa. These casks being refill are an advantage rather than a disadvantage as there is an absolute juicy balance!!
NOSE: Aromas of chewy vanilla fudge and butterscotch with a hint of tart and sticky stewed rhubarb and grape juice.
PALATE: Delicate peat smoke is balanced with notes of juicy red apples and ripe black cherries. Freshly baked pretzels, vanilla and sugar-coated almonds offer buttery, sweet characteristics whilst there is a developing earthy hint of tobacco leaves towards the end.
FINISH: The ashy, earthy, buttery characteristics continue with notes of burnt embers and warm buttered toast.
