This Single Malt from the family-owned distillery in the Kingdom of Fife has been distilled using Fife barley and matured in ex-Oloroso American Oak Sherry Butts used previously for maturing Sherry. These casks were chosen for their gentle oak flavours and sherry rich sweetness to compliment the fruit character of the Kingsbarns spirit.
Nose: Treacle, sultanas, fruit loaf with cinnamon icing, a touch of dark chocolate with summer berries.
Palate: Sweet tinned pineapple up front, orange peel, cake spice.
Finish: Lots of dried apricot and a hint of roasted hazelnut on the finish.
