Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine.

Sweet and deeply fruity oak smoked malt with a long, dry finish.
Warm gold in appearance with a sweet (jelly babies) and malty aroma. Fruitier and juicier than the standard bottling with a hint of smoke. A light to medium body with rich undertones. Firm and sweet on the palate with smoky undertones and fruitiness. Malt, oak and smoke at the base, intriguingly layered. A medium to long finish with fine, oaky expressions, from bananas and vanilla to cocoa. Much drier than it began.
