DISTILLED on 8th January 2010 and BOTTLED on 12th September 2023
A medium bodied spirit with a strong balance of fruity, floral and spice notes. Matured in a hogshead and re-racked in 2018 into a profiler ex-wine barrique, sourced from J Dias Cooperage for the remaining years.
This distillery produces a light and dry spirit that we see as a blank canvas to offer additional cask flavours. In this case, the whisky has spent over 5 years finish in a profiler wine barrique produced by the J.Dias cooperage in Portugal. The process of producing these casks, unique to J.Dias, is similar to an STR cask however, the toasting and re-charring is more gentle. This retains more of the residual wine flavours opposed to the intense oak from traditional STR casks.
Tasting revealed - black cherry, hazelnut chocolate and juicy citrus fruits.
