This expression offers an irresistible doubling of flavour due to the double maturation in two casks made of American oak. Still-maturing whisky from their standard ex-bourbon barrels is transferred to quarter casks and left to rest in the warehouse just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic shore. On the nose the sensation is toffee and caramel, caused by the vanillas and tannins of the American oak, plus a dryness from the wood oil. The finish is long and alternates between this sweetness and smoke.
Chapter Two in our Legacy Series marries spirits matured in two distinct cask types – first fill bourbon and refill sherry barrels. Every drop embodies a combination of forward-thinking and respect for tradition.
On the palate, Creamy and well-balanced, apple crumble, honey drizzled toast, green grape and gentle spice, this richness builds in the warming finish, syrupy with hints of sweet oak and dates.
