This luxury whisky is the first in our history to be matured in a Sauternes wine cask, resulting in an exceptional explosion of tropical flavours. This limited and luxurious cask has yielded just 390 bottles at 49%.
Distilled on 23rd September 1977, this precious spirit has been gently maturing for the past 42 years in Warehouse 6, laid low on antique wooden rails above cool earthen floor and stacked single level, in a traditional dunnage warehouse. Cared for by several generations of our craftsmen, their dedication is perfectly matched by the complex meteorological conditions that surround the towns of Sauternes and Barsac to produce extraordinarily sweet wine. These fruity notes have influenced the whisky over time, resulting in a luxurious expression that dances across the palate for a gloriously long finish.
