Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - Fleshy apples and, smoky campfire and fresh wheat berries are called to mind form the balanced aroma. Smooth on the palate, stone fruit and cracker flavors become white pepper and roasted coffee for an earthy expression. (Apr 2016)
A blend of up to 40 carefully selected single malt and single grain whiskies left to mature in oak casks at the brandís home in Scotland for a minimum of four years. At that point, instead of bottling the blend, the mature liquid is married in handcrafted American oak casks, selected by master blender Stephanie Macleod. These barrels, bourbon and virgin ok, are heavily charred and then lightly scratched at the char layer to alter the flavor of the whisky. The liquid is then left to blend and breathe for additional months, a production process called finishing.
