CASK No. 41.102

Spicy & sweet

Kiwi marmalade on a hot cross bun

Age 13 Years
Date Distilled 25th August 2004
Cask Type First Fill Charred Ex-Red Wine Barrique
Region Speyside
Outturn 1 of 258 bottles
ABV 55.6%


A candied introduction moved through honeycomb and banana bread before displaying perfumed overtones of pot pouri and sweet tobacco. Spicy hot cross buns combined with cinnamon and ginger, perhaps in thick cut marmalade and sticky acacia honey. The palate carried an intense punch of fruit as blackcurrant joined fine Barolo wine with the tartness of hot gooseberry crumble. Macadamia nuts dipped in dark chocolate floated atop fruit puree as kiwi, guava and ripe banana amalgamated with dry wood on the finish. After spending 12 years in an ex-oloroso butt this was transferred to a 1st fill charred red wine barrique for the remainder of its maturation.
