: "In our first groundbreaking experiment, Malt Master Brian Kinsman has proven that traditional whisky casks can still
be seasoned in a pioneering way. Collaborating with a local Speyside craft brewer, Brian created a bold and zesty India Pale Ale beer to imbue our rich
oak casks with extra hoppy notes. The experiment resulted in the first single malt Scotch whisky ever finished in craft India Pale Ale casks.Brian secretly
kept up to nine barrels seasoning at any one time, hidden from view in his warehouse. He varied the time the craft beer spent penetrating deep into the
oak casks, before filling the casks back up with whisky to see what new flavours would be revealed.It was a lengthy, experimental process but they finally
decided on their favourite: Brew 2. The science of seasoning, beer strength and the time the whisky spent being finished all had a remarkable effect on
the final, distinctive flavour.
NOSE: A beautifully delicate balance of ripe green apple, William’s pear and spring blossoms. Aromatic hops and fresh herbs complement the characteristic
Glen ddich fruitiness and sweet, vanilla oakiness. TASTE: Vibrant with a zesty citrus note followed by soft, sweet vanilla and a hint of fresh hops. FINISH:
Long lasting sweetness with subtle green hops.
