Monbazillac Cask Finish

Distilled on 25th April 2008, this whisky’s aroma dances between notes of dark, maple syrup and intense espresso, balanced with cinnamon baked apples. On the palate there is a sweet cereal flavour combined with sweet milk chocolate and honeycomb ahead of subtle spices and emerging nutty flavours. The finish is rich with walnut and maple syrup.

Sauternes Cask Finish

Distilled on 19th September 2008, this whisky brings a burst of peach and apricot on the nose, calmed by rich Manuka honey. The sweet honey continues on the palate accompanied by coconut and ginger. The finish is wonderfully sweet and fresh with a syrupy mouth feel indicative of the Sauternes wine that once occupied the cask.

Rivesaltes Cask Finish

Distilled on 19th September 2008, this whisky marries the characteristic fresh fruit notes incredibly well with the sweet nutty flavours for which Rivesaltes wine is known. Contrasting sweet and bitter flavours dominate the palate, held together by an underlying barley aroma. The finish is velvety with the flavours from the palate lingering for some time.
