Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Some of the Scotch is finished in Oloroso Sherry casks, which accounts for the honey and dried fruit fragrance. The spirit has a smooth, soft feel and a touch of juicy sweetness. Look for caramel and vanilla and rather aggressive oakiness, finishing with orange peel. Best with some time to open up. - K.N.

Ultimate Spirits Challenge 93 points - Earthy and sweet grains fill the nose, with backgrounds of sea salt and butter. The creamy saltiness continue in the mouth with a buttery smooth texture. Piquant spice is tingling on the tongue as the finish develops into the flavor of fresh nuts..March/2017

The 18 Years Old is a single malt Scotch whisky of serious distinction. Once it has spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, we blend them back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour.
