This is only sold at the distillery, and spent 16 years in an American Oak cask used for Pedro Ximenez sherry. The nose is peaty, but balanced well with notes of figs, dried orange peel, vanilla, and creme brulee. The taste is creamy with hints of peppermint, dark chocolate, and dried fruits, with just a touch of brine and peat. Water makes it smoother, and the finish is smoky and peppery with a touch of honey.
