This premium spirit has earned fame by winning a gold in Scotch single malt category (Highland) at the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Competition.

This single malt undergoes the long ageing process of nine years in the classic American white-oak ex-bourbon barrels. Succeeding which, it is then split into two portions and one half of it is aged separately in oloroso sherry casks while the rest of it remains in the white oak casks to mature.
Some connoisseurs refer to it as ‘liquid Christmas cake’ due to its sweet and fruity notes. It is a full-fledged journey from the tip of the nose to the throat, surprising and appeasing its consumers at every step.
We can’t recommend this enough for its splendid aromas of citrus fruits, aromatic spices, and chocolate that touch the tongue and amaze your taste buds with orange, dried fruits, and flavours of vanilla. It leaves an aftertaste of coffee and dark chocolate making it a complete package for every liquor enthusiast out there!
