GREAT FUN

This 12 year old Highlander spent 11 years in a bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a 1st fill charred red wine barrique for the rest of its maturation, and comes in at 57.6%.

Flavour profile:  Peated.

Outturn:  229 bottles.

Panel's tasting note:  "The nose – sweet peat reek, bandages, earthy; plums soaked in brandy, burnt toast with marmalade and jam. The taste – earthy, deep, woody – syrup of figs, aniseed, liquorice; venison with juniper, dark chocolate, fruits of the forest, red currant, leather and pears poached in wine.

The reduced nose – antiseptic and medicinal, woollen socks on an Aga stove, venison goulash, banana toffee and smoke. The reduced palate – chewy and substantial – toffee apple rolled in embers, pickled ginger and blood orange – lots going on and great fun. After 11 years in a bourbon hoggie we moved this into a 1st fill charred red wine barrique."
