Description

Distilled on Islay and matured in a Bourbon cask for ten years, fifty litres were then taken and finished in a small Ex Pedro Ximenez Octave from Josafer Tanoaria.

Original distilled on the 16th of August 2009 in a bourbon hogshead for ten years and bottled after finishing on the 7th of January 2020. We are not allowed to reveal the name of the distillery as part of the agreement for the purchase of the stock.

Our PX octaves are sourced from a family-owned bodega near Porto in Portugal. PX casks on the nose are extremely rich with predominantly sweet notes of dried fruits such as raisins, figs and dates, accompanied by the aromas of honey, grape syrup, jam and candied fruit, at the same time reminiscent of toasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa and liquorice. Velvety and syrupy in the mouth and yet with enough acidity to mitigate the extreme sweetness and warmth of the alcohol leading to a lingering, tasty finish.

As an octave, this cask only yielded 66 bottles which were bottled at cask strength 57.9%

The tasting revealed Salted caramel, sea shells and turf

Enjoy a dram on us! With every bottle purchased, receive a complimentary 2cl sample, selected at random from our current stock.

The Lady of the Glen Gift Set

Thinking about how to gift Whisky, why not try out gift sets?

Our gift sets include the bottle of your choice presented in our oak box with a set of Glencairn tasting glasses.

Glencairn glasses are an excellent accompaniment to any Whisky tasting because their bell shape allows for complex Whisky aromas to be trapped in the glass making them ideal for nosing and sipping. They also have the added benefit that if the glass tips over all of the spirit doesn't splash out!
