Part of our Cask Variations series, American Oak Tawny Single Cask TD0282 was matured in an American oak cask previously used to mature Australian tawny, lending this whisky the fresh caramel and vanilla notes associated with American white oak, combined with the rich Christmas spice and dried fruit flavours of port-style fortified wine. Aged for 11 years and bottled at 47.4% abv.
Nose: Attention seeking Burnt Toffee tries to take over, but it doesn’t work as cherry and apricot blossoms come to the fore. Dates, brown sugar, citrus peel, cardamom, and toasted nuts give way to powerful malt that seems joined at the hip with an appealing note of cocoa.
Palate: The toffee shapeshifts into vanilla custard with nutmeg and cinamon. Macadamias, milk chocolate, nougat, apple pie. Herbal and spicy with silky tannins and a soft texture.
Finish: A fun little splash of dried tropical fruits and glacé ginger, then back to the crème brûlée! Raspberry jam, liquorice, orange liqueur, and then a lengthy finish of stewed plums with a minty lift.
