A blend of years has created the ultimate in refined character. A ged portions of traditional, double pot distilled liquor contribute sophisticated richness and roundness. Portions distilled by the single pot process balance these characters with lively, bright top notes. Parcels have been aged up to eight years in ex-chardonnay French and American oak barrels, contributing further richness and depth.
Tasting note: Matured for up to 8 years in French and American oak barrels which previously held Chardonnay. Bright bronze / ideal clarity. The initial pass finds aromas of prune, raisin cake and dried apricot. Further air contact accents a Christmas cake note. Light on entry, developing body and presence with appealing, semi-sweet, raisin, dried apricot and vanilla flavours. Frail dried fruit and vanilla notes linger in the aftertaste. Pulls up short. Ends subdued, pleasantly warming, drying. 40% Alc./Vol.
