Now here’s a triumphant trifecta that see’s Tim Duckett, Lyn Lark and of course Tassies (four seasons in one day) weather, collaborate to create a magical single malt with real pedigree. Aged in cask number LD965 and LD 775 at a ratio of 85% and 15% respectively, maturation (resulting in a lower ABV) has been through a Rutherglen Tokay cask, a Hunter Valley Apera cask and a Spanish Oloroso cask.
Selling out at Tim’s bond house before he even had a chance to advertise the expression, he was forced to offer these beauties up at one per person to spread the whisky love as far and wide as possible. We’re also playing our small part in Tim’s vision with the limited allocation he sent our way.
