Part of the second wave of whiskies from independent bottler Whisky Works, this Speyside single malt was distilled in September 1998 and matured in American oak for two decades before it was finished for seven months in 20-year-old Cognac casks from the Bourgin Estate in southwest France. Bottled in 2019, this is a sweet, floral whisky, with aromas of citrus, violets and sweet, grassy herbal notes on the nose. The palate offers notes of creamy milk chocolate, golden syrup, ginger and strawberries & cream.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Barley sugar and toffee, candy necklaces and sweet butter. Floral notes develop along with fragrant grassiness. Soft notes of mint fondant hide at the back with building butter, toffee and butterscotch notes over the top.

    • Palate

      Candied flowers lead, with Glacier Mints, sherbet lemons and sharp apples to follow. Gently spicy oak, ginger and a touch of polished wood develop. Hob-nob oats and sweet butter biscuits develop, balanced by sweet royal icing and touch of sour apple.

    • Finish

      Soft but long, with a burst of sawdust fading to leave mint cream, apple sauce a touch of old damp oak. Sweet butter icing lingers.
