This bottling is their 3 year old malt triple cask matured batch #10, casked used are American Virgin Oak, Ex-Bourbon, Ex-Bordeaux.
Bottled at 46% and in small batch.
Notes from the distillery:
On the nose it is very malty, ripe fruity with peach and prune, subtly spicy like clove and cardamom with a lot of vanilla and a little dark chocolate.
With the first sip you can feel a powerful spicy approach, intense notes of a dried fig, pleasant roasted notes of cocoa beans and a soft sweetness.
The whiskey ends voluminously with a slightly bitter tannin structure, spicy notes tingle for a long time in the throat.
