Product of: United Kingdom
This whisky is so named because “combines vanilla characters from American oak and spicy, clove-like characters from French oak.” Whisky innovators Compass Box experimented with secondary maturation of malt whiskies in casks fitted with new French oak heads, this whisky being the result.
