Soft, pillowy aromas are stuffed with ripe fruits (quince, banana), baking spice (cinnamon, allspice), toasted marshmallow.

It’s the inspired choice of this virgin oak, coupled with the bourbon barrels and sherry casks, that account for the whiskey’s satisfying complexity and honey toasted sweetness.
