This is our most masculine, most untamed whisky in an even more “strapping” version. The higher alcohol content and rounded structure naturally allow the body to develop and stretch out, propped up on broad shoulders.
An austere, uncompromising whisky with a taste of bygone eras. It's quite enigmatic, quite alluring. Rather like a mysterious cave hidden deep in the mountains. Armed with enthusiasm and patience, we're like speleologists setting out to discover and shine a light on the darkest, least-known aspects of this spirit. The nose is potent… You certainly get the alcohol, but it's never overpowering. Crispy tones of ginger and cinnamon. On the palate, it's explosive and unbridled, like a river in spate…
It sweeps us away… and takes us back in time to an old-fashioned grocer's, where we breathe in the mingling smells of dried fruit, flour, yeast and cold cuts and, having sneaked in, we don't know where to start.
