Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine.
After mellowing in a refill cask to develop the soft distillery character for a decade, a secondary maturation in a specifically chosen amontillado sherry wood cask ensures that all the good work continues.
Balanced sweet and dry nose, enormous malt palate and long oaky, dry finish
Brisk, sharp and brittle. Complex and excellent; astonishing balance between sweet and dry. Firmer, drier notes from soft vanilla to crisp grape. Sweeter, nuttier tones come from the malted barley and cask wood.
Firm, light to medium
Dry, after early biscuit-sweetness. Enormous malt character contrasts with the fruitiness of the grape.
Very long, dry, oaky. Very faint peppery notes add spice, softened by very late caramel.
