Release consists of 300 individually numbered bottles. Release date was 31.1.2018.
Vanilla and toffee from the oak cask, malted rye and freshly baked rye loaf from the distillate. Malts and dark chocolate.
Rich mouthfeel. Aroma has notes of vanilla, dried apricots, caramel, licorice, herbs, coffee and cocoa. Malted barley balances the sweetness.
Long, it lingers on the insides of the cheeks. Spiciness of rye whiskey is evident.
