Rich red berry compote on an apple strudel, and layers of stone fruits and lightly spiced custard, with very soft tannin and velvet mouthfeel

Aged in a Port cask for 2 years and 11 months and bottled at a cask strength, this is the second highest proof whisky of the whole Dark Valley stable coming in at a palate bending 67.5% ABV (runner up to the Painter’s Brush expression at 68.2%).

Dark Valley comments:
“A ubiquitous presence on a farm and tucked away in every corner of a distillery, our eight-legged friends wait patiently for their prey in their geometric creations. From the tiny to the tremendous, the time and skill required for each arachnid’s epic feat is worthy of respect, some of which are spun and gone overnight. A whisky as complex and intricate as a silken web, and just as evanescent”
