Master Distiller Dave Pickerell began a unique experiment after studying the best techniques of the Old World - particularly Scotch Whiskies - pairing bonds of 12-year-old rye with premium European oak casks - Madeira, Sauternes and Port.
After a series of single finish releases in very limited quantities, the 12 Year Old World is the product of a carefully selected marriage of the three. 30% Sauternes, 63% Madeira, 7% Port.
Nose: Caramel, vanilla and winter fruit.
Palate: Rye spice, apricots, plums, raisins, dates and honey.
Finish: Dark chocolate, winter fruit, caramel and vanilla.
