The whiskey is aged for 15 years in 50% bourbon and 50% sherry casks. These are married in vat and recasked into port pipes for a year. 'Nose: An exquisite belt of exotic spices, cut with rich cigar smoke. Taste: A rich start sets off tangerines, cocoa and spicy port notes. This whiskey keeps unfolding as you hold it in the mouth. Later, nutty toffee and cocoa arrive. Finish: The port really makes itself felt here. Very dry, yet sweet. Hints of bitter chocolate.
