Description and Tasting Notes:
This first expression is a single barrel offering of 100% rye grain, carefully aged first in French Oak that once held red wine, and then transferred to a former port barrel to finish the aging process.
As you lay your eyes on this beautiful whisky, you will be met with a rich buttery caramel colour.
On the nose you experience notes of salted caramel, pepper, rich cherry and a hint of mint, which will envelope your senses. As the whisky splashes across your palate, you will taste the influence of the port barrel with a subtle buttery walnut note.
From there, you move towards the peppery spice that only rye can offer, and finish with a cherry note alongside slight tannins that has been provided by the French Oak.
