Official tasting notes:

Cask Type: Bourbon hogsheads
Here’s a right nugget of a tropical age statement by Cadenhead’s from Fettercairn – You know, that feisty Highland distillery that punches well above its weight, with their pristine mountain water and unique Still cooling-rings. The spirit was distilled in 1988 and then laid to rest in a trio of bourbon hogshead for 28 hypnotic years before been bottle in 2017 at cask strength.
With only 750 bottles released worldwide and a small allocation making it to our sun-drenched shores, we only have a handful to sell, so best get cracking on this Cadenhead beauty, because once they’re gone, they’re for good!
