This whisky has been matured in octave casks, made from staves of a used cask that are approximate 1/8th the size of a butt. The smaller casks allowing for more interaction between the wood and the spirit, giving the whisky a great depth of flavour in a short period of time. Bottled at 44%, non-chill-filtered and natural colour, 70cl bottle.
Nose: An abundance of sweet shop characteristics. Sherbet and candy apples with a gentle warmth of white pepper and cinnamon.
Palate: a vibrant green apple skin note balances with stewed yellow plums and hints of black vanilla pod. Clean, freshly sawn oak softens to crisp, sweet barley in the long finish.
Finish: a delicious combination of citrus and sweet notes complement the unique oak characteristics from the octave cask maturation.
