A classic, iconic release, launched in 1993. This whisky has spent 12 years in traditional whisky casks, American oak ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads. Mellowing the maturing spirit and imparting warming layers of vanilla spiciness. This is then moved to Spanish oak ex-Oloroso sherry casks for an additional nine months to increase complexity, bringing fruity, honeyed depths to the resulting Single Malt. Finally the whisky is then transferred to large oak vessels called “tuns” for 3-4 months to allow the whiskies to “marry” the whisky’s. This is an excellent introduction to a matured whisky for your collection and would also make the perfect whisky gift for a loved one.
