Released December 2013, one of the first in a series of limited edition malts available to members of Diageo’s Friends of the Classic Malts.

Clear, golden amber.
Wonderfully aromatic and fruity with caramel, stewed apple, new leather and peach. Delicately spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon. Water amplifies fruit.
Apple pie and cooked fruit, cinnamon and just enough oak tannins to counter the slight sweetness. Go easy with the water as this seems to awaken hot white pepper spice.
Dried fruit and long lingering cinnamon spice.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
