The 21 Year Old is produced in small, bespoke batches.
Each cask is nosed and approved, making every batch unique.
A sizable inventory of whisky of this age is extremely rare and only the best are selected for this expression.
The complex combination of cask types imparts richness, intensity and a long finish to the whisky.

Opening bouquet offers sedate fragrances of dried flowers and malted barley; aeration stimulates marginally bigger aromas of dried yellow fruit (baked banana), toasty oak barrel and still-vigorous spirit. Palate entry is succulent, honeyed and luscious; midpalate tastes of dates, figs, S’mores, cocoa butter, nougat and dark fudge. Finishes oily, buttery, honey-sweet and focused.
