Tasting note: [20ml sample] Apart from the country of origin, the exact provenance of this cask isn't disclosed. Deep orange-gold. The bouquet is sultry and caressing with a gorgeous stewed fruitiness, gaining a beeswax edge after brief air time. Of the younger whiskies in Batch 16, this is one of the most affable: Big and rounded with an impressive malty burst; A creamy and deliciously simple sensation that's completely engaging. The late surge of juicy grape sugars is quite superb. 59% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered. 277 bottles.
