In celebration of The Spirit of Speyside Festival 2024

About Cross-Atlantic Destinations: This Speyside Festival malt is composed from ex-bourbon, Oloroso sherry and PX sherry casks for a phenomenal delivery – the nose is full throttle with plenty to unpack. The palate is skillfully integrated through the marriage of these casks, creating a complex sipper that checks a multitude of boxes for us! 

Tasting Panel Note: A new pair of leather sandals baked in the heat of the sand on a sun-drenched beach in the Algarve. The whisp of wild fennel, limestone and thyme drifted in the air. The palate took us to the other side of the Atlantic, slicing into a Jamaican ginger cake topped with candied rose petals and toffee, raspberry jam and browned butter. Water pulled the toffee forward and introduced jasmine alongside dark brown sugar on the nose. A gentle oak spice underlined the palate now, complemented by blackcurrants and cocoa powder, chewy pretzels and crème pâtissière.
