This whisky was matured in Cask #577, and bottled at an ABV of 57.9%, with a stunning smooth and complex character a fine example of the Annandale style.

This whisky is not for the faint of heart, but for the true connoisseurs who appreciate a peated dram.

Fresh bourbon casks play a vital role in the maturation of single cask single malt whisky. These casks, made from new American oak, bring a symphony of flavours to the spirit. As the whisky rests in these pristine containers, it absorbs the rich, sweet vanillin notes imparted by the oak. The casks also lend a warm, golden hue to the liquid, enhancing its visual appeal.

Over time, our peated spirit imbibes with the wood, extracting deep caramel, toffee, and butterscotch tones that infuse the whisky with layers of complexity. The porous wood allows for subtle oxidation and evaporation (the Angel’s Share), concentrating the flavours and creating a unique, individual character in each cask. The result is a single cask single malt whisky of unparalleled depth and quality, cherished by connoisseurs for its distinct, full-bodied taste and aromatic charm.
