CASK No. 68.16

Spicy & dry

Pleasingly precocious

Age 8 Years
Date Distilled 19th October 2009
Cask Type Re-Charred Oak Hogshead
Region Highland
Outturn 1 of 314 bottles
ABV 59.4%


A pleasingly precocious dram – deep copper gold to the eye and a joy to sniff – rich tiffin, fruit cake, Crunchie bars, orange zest, Jaffa cakes and polished furniture. The palate has some peppery spice, but is mainly mellifluously sweet – dark caramel, rum and raisin fudge and Anton Berg luxurious chocolates. Water opens up the nose to sanded wood, compressed dried dates, coffee and lemon drizzle cake – and it sweetens the palate (dark honey, toasted coconut, booze-soaked sultanas) though now you can also find hints of oak and teasingly numbing spice (nutmeg, clove) – a fabulous dram for the age.
