Explosive highland peat tamed by Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry casks, this is flavour with a capital ‘F’. After 7 years maturing perfectly well in a bourbon cask we couldn’t help ourselves and transferred a small parcel of this peated Highlander to one of our very own 55 litre sherry cask for a further 2 years. With a yield of just 72 bottles this is a wonderfully complex sweet smoky treat. Be quick, this won’t hang about long…
Think whisky-cured bacon. Subtle smoky flavours alongside an exotic sweetness from the sherry cask which adds a hit of caramelised raisins and spice.
Punchy, traditional style with a malty core and complex, spicy layers. There’s definitely Christmas cake in there, with the Oloroso influence perfectly complimenting the gentle peaty tones while the original bourbon cask adds soft notes of vanilla and coconut.
Long and comforting, this is a fireside dram to warm the chilliest winter cockles. A truly satisfying drop.
