Matured in ex-bourbon American oak barrels, Darkest Winter exudes aromas of toasted maple and freshly cut straw, with a silky sweetness, notes of crushed almond and a warming smokiness developing on the palate.
Darkest Winter is intended to be sipped in celebration of every great occasion or for moments of reverence. Each year we choose to celebrate our famous Darkest Winter expression on the night of the Winter Solstice.
Barrelled at absolute cask strength, this is peated whisky as it sits in the cask, and Darkest Winter is bottled as individually numbered cask expressions.
Each barrel will exhibit its own unique characteristics, creating slight variation from batch to batch.
