Matured in the traditional style in American bourbon barrels, this whisky is then ‘finished’ in Tawny Port Hogsheads, sourced from the Douro region in the north of Portugal. During this second period of maturation, the whisky derives a rich red fruit taste distinctive to the Port hogshead.
Nose – A perfect balance of fresh cranberries and warm white pepper develops to a combination of tart raspberries and boiled candy.
Colour – Rich amber with a copper glow.
Taste – Delicious toasted oak spices and hints of orange peel develop to a lively contrast of wild red berry compote and sour cherries, followed by a rich stewed barley character.
