The arrival at the distillery of a batch of dark roasted malted barley, more commonly used in the production of stout, marked the beginning of a 26-year long experiment. The result was a pleasing depth – smokiness and oakiness as well as the classic honey, vanilla and citrus flavours.

Pale amber color.

LA Whisk(e)y Society Rating B
Completely agree with the notes above and this was one of my go-to bottles for a long time. Always replaced an empty bottle …. until it got kinda …. tired.

Wine Enthusiasts Rating 4.8
First nosing exposes dry scents of walnuts, grass and dark toffee. Entry is malty and vanilla—extract bittersweet; midpalate is silky, creamy, Sherry sweet, pruny and black raisin-like. Ends on a dark chocolate note that’s chewy, medium-sweet and satisfying.
