Brilliant amber to copper color.
The aromatics are very grain focused with toasted grains and nuts with supporting notes of clove, allspice, cinnamon bark, rancio, vanilla bean, and black pepper.
The palate echoes the nose perfectly with a lush, caramel-accented sweet grain core with loads of spice, dried fruit, and pepper.
Intensity & Texture
Wonderfully intense without being over-the-top showing great balance with a generous dose of acidity that keeps it vibrant.

This Whisky is distilled in both a pot still and column stills. The Rye Whisky then aged for a minimum of eight years before it's given a small addition of Amontillado Sherry and briefly rested in charred white oak casks. The Sherry notes in this Whisky are subtle and therefore supporting the rich, rye core. Often Sherry finishing can takeover.
