A virgin American oak cask selected by the Australian importer, Ian McKinlay, on his last visit to the distillery. The unpeated malt was distilled in April 2010 and bottled in December 2015.
Tasting note: Eyecatching glossy mahogany colour shows considerable legs. This needs lots of air to blow off the opening varnishy notes. Five minutes finds a dramatic improvement, gaining definition with hints of candied orange peel, dates, cinnamon and thick malt. A densely packed, bittersweet attack. Mid palate surge adds a fabulous stone fruit rush: nectarine, apricot, white peach? Aftertaste is creamy, fruity, lingering with nectarine salient in the aftertaste. A summer fruit flavour extravaganza.120 bottles available. 62.8% Alc./Vol.
