If you are feeling like treating yourself or someone else then our final whiskey is one to check out. This is a superb price for a whiskey with this much age, as aged stock become increasing less available. Also, each bottle is numbered. The spirit is aged separately in bourbon and Oloroso casks before blending and further aging in Maderia for 2 years. As you would expect from a whiskey this old the flavour profile is complex but soft and inviting with layers of toffee, honey, mocha, tropical fruit and tobacco. An exquisite whiskey.
