Explore the vibrant world of young & spritely malts with Cask 85.50 Exhilarating rush of clarity and Cask 10.153 The prince of quince. Both share 12 years in oak but their regions could not be more different. For a sweet, fruity & mellow flight, Cask 39.169 Yummy rummy and Cask 88.16 Deliciously decadent dessert will provide great contrast of time in the barrel as well as the barrel itself. For a lightly peated experience, try Cask 4.250 Celebrity yurt indulgence next to Cask 122.26 It’s peat Jim, but not as we know it…, noting the differences in Highland peat (island and mainland) and nine years of age between the drams.
