Using whiskies aged between 8-10 years, it is medium bodied with plenty of fruit and spicy oak. This won Gold Medal and Best in Class in the 2009 International Wine and Spirits Awards.
The nose is full and rich with notes of fruit and barley malt, plenty of oak and a little floral character. The palate is full-bodied with a minerality, notes of barley and cereal sweetness with mixed peels. The finish is full and based mainly on malt notes.
