Winner: Master at World Whisky Masters Asia 2018
Aged in a 200L American oak ex-bourbon cask for 17 years, HH0317 is similar in age and style to the world beating HH0351, which was awarded Best Single Cask Single Malt in the World at the 2018 World Whiskies Awards. Bottled at 47.5% abv, this cask produced only 187 bottles.
Each bottle comes in a solid oak presentation box, and includes a letter of authenticity signed by Master Distiller Patrick Maguire and Production Manager Heather Tillott.
Nose: An enticing floral musk with creaming soda, marshmallows, toffee apple and hints of warm clove backed up by vanilla and perfumed oak.
Palate: Incredibly rich and creamy palate with sweet blood oranges, ripe red apples, vanilla custard, lemon sherbet, and orange marmalade developing into smooth warmth and fine tannins that balance perfectly with the sweet citrus notes.
Finish: Lingering nutty caramel fudge with floral tones, pastry, oranges and custard. An impeccably balanced whisky.
