Each Distillers Edition undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine.
After mellowing in a refill cask to develop the soft distillery character for a decade, a secondary maturation in a specifically chosen amontillado sherry wood cask ensures that all the good work continues.
A balanced sweet and dry nose, enormous malt palate and a long oaky, dry finish.
Golden brown in appearance. A brisk and sharp nose, complex and excellent with an astonishing balance between sweet and dry with firmer, drier notes from soft vanilla to crisp grape. Sweeter, nuttier tones come from the malted barley and cask wood. Dry on the palate after early, biscuit sweetness. The enormous malt character contracts with the fruitiness of the grape. A very long, dry, oaky finish. Faint peppery notes add spice, softened by very late caramel.
