A big malty nose gives way to fresh-baked vanilla cookies. On the palate, the pepper comes in with a bang followed by baked apples. A touch of sweet banana candy on the finish. Digestive biscuits, ripe bananas and a hint of pepper. This is the taste of Scotland’s slowest distillation, matured in sherry casks crafted from European and American oak. It’s then bottled as tradition insists: at cask strength, un-chillfiltered.
