A blend of grain and malt whiskey. Malt whiskies: Cragganmore, Linkwood, Glen Elgin. Grain whiskies: Cambus, Cameron Bridge. Aged in first fill Bourbon barrels. This is the perfect introduction for someone who doesn't yet know they like Scotch. Light in body and dangerously easy to dink. Perfect for summer.

A vatted grain whisky made by blending single grain whiskies from different distilleries. From Cambus, Caledonian, and Cameron Bridge aged entirely in first fill bourbon barrels. Floral, sweet and silky with an incredible mouthfeel. No chill-filtration or color added.

This malt whisky is named for the custom oak casks used for aging that are literally a crossing of both French and American oak. It possesses a soft palate with subtle notes of clove and vanilla that accent its sweet maltiness and subtle fruit character. Elegant enough to be served as an apéritif, but rich enough to drink after a fine meal.


Winemaker's Notes:

Vatted Malt (a blend of single malts from different distilleries) The aroma is a highly aromatic combination of fruit, spice and marine peatiness in the form of a beach bonfire. Adding water brings out aromas that remind you of burning ropes and a touch of iodine. In the mouth it is very full on the palate, rich and loaded with flavour: a bacon-fat smokiness, full-blown peat, a maltiness, hints of fruit and spice. The finish goes on seemingly forever, echoing peat and smoke for several minutes after you've had a sip. More of an after dinner and into-the-late-hours-of-the-evening-type of whisky. Drink it neat or with a few splashes of (bottled, preferably) water. Excellent with certain kinds of blue vein cheeses.
