That is an intense and distinctive single malt that showcases qualities of each the Oloroso and PX that inhabited the cask earlier than the whisky arrived.

The palate is lush with stewed, sugary darkish fruits, however there’s additionally loads of dry oak, a tart raisiny high quality, and a wholesome serving to of roasted nuts to maintain issues from skewing too jammy or candy. The end arrives with a warming, gingery spice and lingers with espresso grounds and black cherry. A soulful and complicated single malt that proves we Yanks could make whisky simply as attention-grabbing as the oldsters abroad.
