Producer Information

Key Information

This rare single malt whisky has initially been matured in American oak casks for at least 10 years and transferred into casks or ´barriques´ which have previously contained wine from the Sauternes region of France for a further 5 years of maturation.

Colour - Deep autumnal gold.

Nose - Rich and syrupy with a heady mix of home baked desserts. At full strength, the aroma is reminiscent of syrup pudding and Madeira cake, smothered in lemon curd and a dusting of spices.

The addition of water releases a softer sponge cake mixture with raisins, sultanas, vanilla cream, and lemon peel. Throughout there is a home baking aroma emanating from the mixture of toasted oak tanning sans syrupy sweet aromas.

Taste - Deep, rich and mouth-coating, the mouthfeel is at once tingly, tangy, chewy with spices, Madeira cake and lemon curd. Toasted oak tannins are revealed in the deep and chewy mouthfeel, intricately woven with honey and lemon toddies, cake mix and soft vanilla flavours.

Finish - Long and sweet with soft sponge cake soaked in vanilla cream and lemon curd, with a hint of eucalyptus.
