Just 72 barrels were hand-picked and married together to create this limited edition release which is bottled at a barrel-proof strength of 63.6% abv.

Nose: candied fruit and cinnamon spice.

Palate: boldy spice and sweet toffee, with fig cake, cinnamon, cloves and a touch of cooling mint.

Finish: allspice and nutmeg linger on.
