US Exclusive cask in celebration of The Global Gathering 2022 - named by American actor, comedian and SMWS member Neil Patrick Harris!
A stiff and bold spirit that will surely get your blood pumping! The nose evokes freshly baked bread, molten sugars, and roasted hazelnuts with a rush of white peppercorn. The palate reveals smoked cherries, black currant, and an abundance of rich baking spices with a texture that is rich and creamy. Water helps tame the beast as we are treated to a beautiful array of crushed ginger biscuits, caramelized peaches, and a hint of rosemary. A delightful finish to a raw and otherworldly experience. After 7 years in an American oak Oloroso butt, this whisky was moved to a 1st fill Spanish oak Oloroso butt for the remainder of its maturation.
