The whisky was distilled in September 1998, one of the final production runs before this grand distillery fell silent forever. It spent 20 years quietly maturing in American White Oak before being finished in cognac barriques for 7 months. These rare casks originally held a rich cognac – also distilled in 1998 – from the Bourgoin Estate in Southwest France.
The cognac cask finish brings sweet herbal notes to the fore, with aromas of milk chocolate, violet florals, brandy snaps, rose, and strawberries & cream.
Just 1,618 individually numbered bottles of this 20 year-old Speyside Single Malt exist, each of which has no added colour and no chill-filtration
