This unique single malt, distilled and filled at Auchroisk distillery in 2008, was matured for many years in a refill ex-Bourbon hogshead and then finished in a century-old Spanish oak cask, which previously held the rare and ancient sweet wine of the Alicante region - Fondillion. The resulting whisky carries notes of dried fruit, toasted oak, turmeric spice and orange peel. 

Fondillion is regarded as a luxury sweet wine enjoyed by Spanish royalty since the fifteenth century and produced solely in the Alicante region on hills overlooking the Mediterranean sea. It gets its caramel, hazelnut, dried orange peel and ripe fig. 

TASTING NOTES

NOSE Dried fruits, roasted hazelnuts, turmeric spice, dark honey and polished oak. 
PALATE Fresh and zesty ripe fruits, toasted cereals, chilli-coated nuts, exotic spices and hints of coffee.
