Cask RC-436 showcases the meticulous aging process that defines this exceptional whiskey. For the first seven years, the spirit matured in ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks, which impart rich, complex flavours to the whiskey. The ex-Bourbon casks provide smooth vanilla undertones, while the Sherry cask adds sweet and nutty notes. To complete its journey, the whiskey had been finished in a rye cask for one more year, adding a distinct spice and depth that sets this single malt apart.

Bottled at 54.7% ABV, with a yield of only 160 bottles.

Tasting notes:
Nose: Fresh and vibrant, with green apples, pear drops, icing sugar, honey, and digestive biscuits.

Palate: Sweet and flavourful, with apple strudel, lemon drizzle, burnt toffee, charred oak, and a touch of cinnamon.

Finish: Dry oak, black forest fruits, cellar mustiness, and a long-lasting tingling dryness.
