Review by Whisky Works

Colour

Pale gold

Nose

Crisp pear and ripe banana, with subtle layers of vanilla and toasty oak which accentuate the fruit notes

Palate

Homemade apple pie with a light dusting of cinnamon, patisserie sugar and delicate floral notes

Note

This whisky employs a rare maturation process using wood from two centuries-old Scottish Oak trees wind-felled on a Highland estate.

Scottish Oak rarely yields the knot-free staves needed for barrel-making, and these fallen elders provided suitable timber for just one single cask. Initially matured in first-fill Bourbon barrels and refill American White Oak casks, a portion of whisky was then finished in our Native Scottish Oak cask to bring out the prominent orchard fruit notes.

The resulting whisky is the epitome of a Highland style fresh with crisp apples and pears, soft wood spice, and cinnamon. Just 2,157 individually numbered bottles of this 10 year old blend of Highland Blended Malt Scotch Whisky exist, each of which is non-chill filtered and has no added colour.
