Deep autumn russet
Delicate aromas of ripe black cherries, sweet Muscovado sugar, peaches and rich dark chocolate are conveyed on a whisper of new leather and soft peat smoke
A complex and vibrant intensity of flavours follows with exotic spices, candied orange peel, toasted oak and ripe apricots delivering a deliciously rich yet fragrant sweetness.
Dry spices and the impression of dark espresso coffee linger at the finish, enrobed in aromatic peat smoke.
Nine refill casks, originally laid down in 1968, were married together in 2008 and re-racked into several first-fill sherry seasoned traditional oak casks. After a further 12 years of maturation, just one sherry seasoned European oak butt was selected and a small quantity of the whisky it contained was married with some of our 2018 batch of 50 Year Old, to yield just 274 bottles.
