70cl / 46% abv
The 2018 release of this Campbeltown favourite has been matured in a combination of 30% bourbon and 70% rum casks, aged for at least 21 years and bottled at a strength of 46% abv. Just 3,700 bottles have been made available worldwide.
Nose: heather and cut grass initially, with honey, pear, wood shavings, hints of butter and New York cheesecake.
Palate: butterscotch and vanilla from the bourbon casks, with the rum casks giving a sugar cane and molasses crescendo, and a touch of apricot, peach and paprika.
Finish: soft smoke, toffee apples and raising with some almonds and apricot jam.
