12 Year Old

core

Our 12 year old, charges at you and shakes you up a bit, but then leaves you with a realisation that this is what blended Scotch whisky should actually be like, a bit of rough and tumble with a silky smooth ending.

We take robust and rich highland and speyside malt whiskies, matured in refill ex-sherry European Oak butts and refill ex-bourbon American Oak hogsheads, and blend them together with lowland grain, matured in refill ex-bourbon American Oak barrels, in a ratio of 50% malt to 50% grain and bottled at a powerful 50% abv to give you the ride of your life.

Grab it by the horns, hold on tight and enjoy the ride.

TASTING NOTES

Colour : Old Amber.

Nose : Robust, chunky aromas of sherry, red fruits, cherries and toffee with a suggestion of vanilla and lemon sherbert.

Palate : Creamy chocolate, fruit and honey with apple and an expressive nuttiness.

Finish : Buttery toffee, long lasting, coordinated, silky.

Comment: : A whisky that comes at you at full charge initially, and then gradually soothes you with its bountiful palate and smooth finish.
