With patience, comes reward. Forty-two years on our Distillery Manager, Graham Eunson, has declared that the spirit in cask 38863 is in its prime, and ready and to be savoured. This limited and luxurious cask has yielded just 390 bottles at 49%.
This luxury, exclusive whisky is the first in the distillery’s history to be matured in a Sauternes wine cask, resulting in an exceptional explosion of tropical flavours.
A delightful explosion of orchard and tropical fruits set the scene,soon met with bursts of rich vanilla and salted caramel.
Vivacious notes of oak aged Chardonnay, sweet honeysuckle, and baking spice, enticed from the Sauternes cask influence, dance across the palate resulting in a gloriously long finish.
Each of the 390 units is decanted into an exquisite hand blown Glencairn Crystal decanter with unique copper decoration. This luxury bottle is presented with two glasses (also Glencairn Crystal), a solid copper stopper, along with a numbered certificate detailing the remarkable journey of the whisky.
